Joleon Lescott finally looks set to star in the Premiership, pending a medical with Everton this morning.

The news will come as a mixed blessing to the club, who one one hand will be glad of the substantial fee recieved, but on the other lose an icon whose influence in defence cannot be underestimated.

Speaking to the clubs official site, Wolves CEO Jez Moxey said ‘We have been in discussion with a number of clubs interested in signing Joleon and have agreed a transfer fee with Everton.

‘Joleon is this morning undergoing a medical examination and, subject to the outcome of that, we expect to conclude the transfer which will reflect the player’s value.’
