Joleon Lescott makes fun of former teammate Yaya Toure as he tweets that he'll be leaving The Hawthorns if he doesn't get a birthday cake.

West Bromwich Albion wished defender Joleon Lescott a happy birthday through Twitter, with the English international light-heartedly responding that he will leave if he doesn't receive a birthday cake.

The 32-year-old was making a joke at the expense of former teammate Yaya Toure, who was reportedly upset at Manchester City after they failed to give him a cake for his birthday.

The alleged incident caught the media's attention, reports claiming that the midfielder wanted to leave the Premier League champions during their pre-season tour of Dubai.

Lescott was absent from West Brom's opening game of the season due to injury after picking up a knock in a pre-season friendly against Nottingham Forest.
