Joleon Lescott admits that he would relish the chance to form a regular central-defensive partnership with Phil Jagielka at international level.

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has revealed that there is "a level of trust" between himself and Everton's Phil Jagielka.

Lescott and Jagielka have played together for England Under-18s and Everton and the 30-year-old has revealed that he would relish an opportunity to continue that partnership for England after the international retirement of John Terry.

When asked about the prospect of partnering Jagielka on a regular basis, Lescott said: "I'd like to believe so, but obviously Gary Cahill has played a lot of games too.

"If the manager believes that myself and Jags can make the position ours, then great, and hopefully we can do that.

"We grew up together. We played from England Under-18s and then at Everton. There is a level of trust."

Lescott partnered Jagielka in England's 1-1 draw with Poland on Wednesday night.
