West Ham United are linked with Manchester City's Joleon Lescott once again.

West Ham United manager Sam Allardyce is reportedly planning to resume his pursuit of Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott this summer.

The Sky Blues were reluctant to sell the former Everton player in January, but the Hammers could capture him on a free transfer at the end of the season.

Lescott is prepared to accept less than his current £90,000-a-week salary to leave City for another top-flight club, The Mirror reports.

However, Besiktas are also said to be keen on Lescott and are willing to offer him a £100,000-a-week salary to lure him to Turkey.
