Aston Villa central defender Joleon Lescott has been offered to Greek clubs Olympiacos and AEK reveals Greek website Sport24.
The 34-year old English defender saw a move to rangers collapse very publicly last week and it now looks unlikely he’ll be off to Glasgow and the Scottish Premier League.
It was reported Lecott’s move to Rangers broke down because of family reasons, with Glasgow being too far away. Therefore it’s unclear why a move to Greece will make any sense, if he feels Glasgow and Rangers are too great a distance.
Olympiacos have been linked with Liverpool’s Portuguese defender Tiago Ilori, and we’ve covered it before and now they reportedly have a chance to sign Lescott.
AEK are also in for Lescott after their boss Temur Ketsbaia made him 1st choice target after Marseille’s Rolando rejected the club. The Greek SuperLeague is currently postponed due to security reasons and will start after the international break.
Aston Villa fans grew frustrated with Lescott a long time ago and they probably feel Greece isn’t far enough.
