Joleon Lescott admits that he would like to sign a new Manchester City deal in the near future.

Joleon Lescott has revealed that he would be eager to sign a new contract with Manchester City.

The England defender's current deal expires next summer and he understands that there is a chance he will be allowed to join another club on a free transfer at the end of the season.

"I want to stay and be part of the future," Lescott told reporters. "But I understand there's the business side of it and if it's not to be, I will walk away from the club with my head held high and no regrets.

"Nothing would please me more than to sign an extension. If that negotiation ever happens, I will be there with my pen ready to sign."

City signed Martin Demichelis to increase the competition for places in defence.
