Joleon Lescott makes fun of Yaya Toure in birthday tweet

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.
