Lescott completes move to Man City

Lescott completes move to Man City

England defender Joleon Lescott has completed his move to Manchester City from Everton on a five-year deal.
The reported 22 million pound ($36 million) transfer was finalized on Tuesday after Lescott completed a medical examination and agreed to personal terms.
City has spent more than 120 million pounds since the end of last season rebuilding the squad.
Lescott said: "The way this club is moving on, I'm really looking forward to being a part of that."
Everton had been reluctant to sell Lescott to its Premier League rival and had rejected two lower bids.
Lescott, who turned 27 last week, made 113 appearances for Everton and scored 14 times. He joined Everton from Wolverhampton in 2006, and has made seven appearances for England.
