Beşiktaş to make bid for Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott

Beşiktaş will make a final offer for Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott according to Lig Tv.

The Black Eagles have been closely linked with Lescott over the transfer window and the England international is free to speak to clubs this month, with his contract set to expire at the end of the season.

Lescott is also reported to be close to reaching an agreement with West Ham.

The Daily Telegraph reported that the Hammers have agreed a three-and-a-half contract with City worth £90,000 per-week.

Despite the interest City boss Manuel Pellegrini has been reluctant to let go of the 31-year-old.

"No, no. I am not talking about any loan at the moment," Pellegrini said.

"I repeat, when this transfer window is over at the end of January, we will see what happens. At the moment, Joleon will stay here with the team."

Beşiktaş are reported to have offered Lescott a deal worth €2.2m per-season.

Lescott joined City from Everton for £24 million in 2009 and has made 152 appearances for the Citizens.
