Joleon Patrick Lescott is an England international football player who currently features for the English and European giants Manchester City. He is a versatile defender who can play anywhere across the backfour but his best position is at centre-back.

In the summer of 2006 Lescott was signed by Everton for 4 million pounds and he went on to become a top player for the Merseysiders. He became a regular for Everton since he joined the club and has established himself as a candidate for the England national team too.
In 2009 Lescott was signed by Manchester City and he has gone on to become a key figure for thr Citizens. He was crucial in City’s triumph in the FA Cup in 2011 and the Premier League in 2012.
Lescott made his international debut for England in October 2007 against Estonia. He played for the Three Lions at Euro 2012 and has made over 20 appearance for his country so far.
