City on Lescott:
Born and raised in Birmingham but scouted by Wolverhampton, Lescott made his senior debut at 17 againstSheffield Wednesday at Molineux in August 2000. Fans voted him young player of the year, an accolade that was repeated the following season.
He returned to fitness to claim the player of the year award and was transferred to Everton, making his Goodison debut in August 2006. Regular accolades followed, particularly in 2007-08 when he weighed in with ten goals in all competitions.
Lescott won caps at Under-18, Under-20, Under-21 and England B levels before being called up for the senior squad by Steve McClaren in September 2007. He made his debut as a substitute in a 3-0 win over Estonia a month later.
He was a strong contender for England's World Cup squad but his 2009-10 campaign was disrupted by injury, and when he missed the last nine games of the season Fabio Capello omitted him from the 30-strong provisional squad.
He returned to the fold under Roy Hodgson for Euro 2012 and was one of the Three Lions' most consistent performers in his three appearances in Poland Ukraine.
Hodgson had clearly been impressed with the partnership Joleon had formed with Vincent Kompany in City's title-winning campaign in 2011/12, with the pair contributing to the best defensive record in the division.
Although he found fewer opportunities coming his way in 2012/13 after the signing of Matija Nastasic, Joleon is a steady, experienced presence whenever he is called upon and has started the 2013/14 campaign in excellent form.
