Everton turn down Lescott`s transfer request

Liverpool: Everton manager David Moyes insists he has no intention of selling Joleon Lescott to Manchester City after turning down the England defender`s transfer request.

City have had two offers of 16 and 18 million pounds rejected by Moyes and Lescott tried to force Everton`s hand this week by asking to leave.

But Moyes is determined to keep the 26-year-old at Goodison Park and he warned Lescott he won`t bow to his demands.

"We will continue to work with him as we appreciate his many qualities as a player," Moyes told Everton`s website.

"I have said all along that I have no intention of selling my best players.”

“Joleon is simply not for sale."
