Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott rejects a move to Galatasary to remain in the Premier League next season, according to a report.

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has reportedly turned down a move to Galatasaray.

The 31-year-old is out of contract in the summer and is said to be the target of several clubs eyeing an experienced centre-back.

Roberto Mancini set his sights on bringing Lescott - who he managed at City - to the Turkish side, but the England international wishes to stay in the Premier League, according to The Mirror.

The defender struggled for playing time at the Etihad Stadium last season, making just 24 appearances for the club in all competitions.
