West Ham United are keen on agreeing a deal to sign Manchester City defender Joel Lescott at the end of his contract, according to the Daily Mirror.

Lescott, 31, has made just 19 appearances for the Citizens this season - with only eight of those Premier League starts.

The Birmingham-born defender was targetted by the Hammers during the January transfer window, but a deal could not be struck for the England international, with Lescott's wage demand believed to be the stumbling block.

With his contract at the Etihad Stadium up at the end of the season, Lescott will leave City on a free transfer after finding himself way behind the club's other centre-halves.

Despite failing to agree a deal with the Hammers in January, Lescott would be more willing to accept a paycut to join West Ham in the summer.
