Joleon Lescott has completed his move from Everton to Manchester City.
The 27-year-old defender signed a five-year deal with the Eastlands outfit on Tuesday night, after City had a bid, reportedly worth £22m, accepted by Everton.
Confirmation of the transfer takes Mark Hughes’ summer spending beyond £120million.
City boss Mark Hughes said: “I am absolutely delighted to welcome Joleon to Manchester City. He is an England international who has proved his Premier League ability during his time at Everton.
“In bringing Joleon to the club I feel we have recruited a defender of the very highest quality. He can play in a number of defensive positions, and I’m positive he will make a significant impact for us.”
Lescott said: “I’m over the moon to get the move completed, and I’m looking forward to training with the lads as I’ve not trained for a few days.
“I know some of the lads already – I’m close friends with Shaun (Wright-Phillips), we’ve played against each other since we were 16 or 17. The way this club is moving on, I’m really looking forward to being a part of that.”
