Jolean Lescott to the LA Galaxy?

In one of the more realistic sounding transfers this window, a move away from struggling Aston Villa seems increasingly likely for former Manchester City man, Jolean Lescott. The man at the backline for the Villains has seemingly secured a place in the starting 11 for Villa but age is catching up to the English international and what better place to end your career than in sunny Los Angeles, California with the LA Galaxy.

Lescott is reported to have been offered a deal already to have him potentially join LA Galaxy target and former AS Roma defender Ashley Cole to bring a solid backline to the MLS side. Lescott would bring international caps with England while also garnering years of experience in the English Premier League. Multiple news outlets reported that Villa have already received a bid of 3 million pounds, with no news on whether the bid has been accepted or not. No matter which side you support, it would show that the MLS is becoming increasingly more of a popular choice for players overseas. Now it is worth being noted that Aston Villa’s manager Remi Garde has come out and said he does not want to see Lescott leave the club and has ruled out a move this window. But this isn’t the first time a manager has denied a move that came to be.

In my opinion, Lescott to the Galaxy will happen… in the summer. Villa need all of the help they can get when it comes to the backline and losing a crucial player like Lescott is the last thing they need. At the end of the season if Villa is relegated, the move will happen almost definitely. The move looks like a good deal for both, but only if Villa can’t survive to live another year in the top flight in England. In the end, I see the move happening, it’s just a matter of when.
