Defender edges closer to completing Blues switch

Sky Sports News understands Joleon Lescott has passed a medical ahead of his proposed £24million move to Manchester City. The England international is now set to put the finishing touches to his big-money switch from Everton. The Toffees accepted a bid from their Premier League rivals on Sunday and City have wasted no time in pushing the deal through. Lescott travelled to Manchester on Monday, took in a short visit to Eastlands, before heading off for a physical examination. Having satisfied City's medical team he is now in a position to sign a contract with the Blues. The 27-year-old will move to Eastlands after three successful years at Goodison Park, in which he established himself as a highly-regarded top flight performer and forced his way into the international fold.
