My fellow fantasy Premier League managers, our long national nightmare is over.
Joleon Lescott has finally completed his move to from Everton to Manchester City.I'm assuming he'll be available for this Sunday's match at Portsmouth. We'll certainly be watching the news on that. He's a 10.49 defender, so much like his transfer value in "real life" he's too expensive. But he may bring additional value to the cheaper members of Citeh's back five - Brigde, Given, and Richards.
The 27-year-old defender signed a five-year deal with the Eastlands outfit on Tuesday night.
Lescott completed his medical and agreed personal terms on Monday after City had a bid, reportedly worth £22million, accepted by Everton on Sunday but there was a brief delay to the England star's transfer going through as a minor wrangle was resolved.
