Lescott to leave for Rangers


Aston Villa defender JoleonLescott is currently in talks with Scottish side Rangers for a possible move before the end of the transfer window.


The player who has signed a new two-year deal with Aston Villa last season has yet to make an appearance for them this season and might be interested in moving to Rangers.

JoleonLescott has some good experience of the Premier League and European football after having played for both Everton and Manchester City. Rangers will benefit from having a player of this quality in their team. JoleonLescott has also played for the England team where he has made 26 appearances.

It is believed that Ranger’s manager Mark Warburton has traveled personally to meet the player and has presented him with the current vision of the club. Warburton believes that Lescott will add some experience at the back and may help Rangers compete in the Scottish league. He stated that he has always been an admirer of the player and that he believes that the player can play for a few more years at the highest level.

Mark Warburton added that the player seems to be open to a move and that talks are still in progress. Rangers are also considering signing former Arsenal defender Philip Senderos on a short-term deal. The player is currently available on a free-transfer and has already started training with the Scottish side. The Rangers staff will make an assessment of his condition before taking a decision on whether to sign the player or not.

JoleonLescott has yet to make an appearance for Aston Villa this season as the club will want to see whether they can get a good price for the player. At the moment he is training alone in order to recover his fitness.
