Man City plan Lescott move

News of the World says Hughes is desperate to bring in Lescott this summer and is ready to sacrifice Richards in order to sign the 26-year-old.

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright will hold out for a big bid as the club need the defender, as Phil Jagielka could be out of action until Christmas with a injury.

Reports suggest City are ready to almost double Lescott’s £45,000-a-week wages.
