For what its worth, I'm friendly with a few chelsea fans down here, the word is Huth is very big and powerful, has a very powerful shot but is slow around the pitch...I'm now thinking Lescott may be the better bet?

What if Yobo goes to Arsenal!  Maybe be could use the money of the Yobo deal to get Huth and have both Huth and Lescott at the heart of the defence.
One thing is that things are certainly looking good for us  :D

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I think the money to get Lescott is coming from the Yobo sale mate - you can forget Huth....

Highly delighted with this when and if it comes off.

I have seen the boy play one or two games and he is a bloody bargain for what we are rumoured to be paying for him.

On a completely different note, I love the way some Palace and a Wolves have come on and commented in a very positive way, respect to you all who have taken the time and trouble to do that. I feel that reflects on us as a forum, for decent thinking Everton fans.

No worries,

The guy has been our best player if not better since Robbie Keane. As much as I'd like him to stay with Wolves and play for Wolves in the Premiership (don't laugh), I'm going to look forward to watching him on Sky playing for you guys. You have landed a future England player IMHO.

Seems like your board are making the right moves anyway!

Have a good season and see you there next year!

Following the play-off final in 2003 Joleon underwent surgery to both of his knees, which sadly ruled him out of the entire season when Wolves were in the Premier League.

http://en.wikipedia..../Joleon_Lescott

just looked him up. he's highly regarded and considered an england prospect. but are the knees up to the rigours of the premiership?

presumably his medical would be thorough! lets hope he works out ok!

Alright fellas!

Thought Id see what you Evertonians thought of getting our Jo and thought I'd clear up some questions that seem to pop up. Also wondering why the transfer hasnt been confirmed.

His hairline is a bit fooked up from a car accident when he was a youngster.

Also a few of you seem worried about his knees, I wouldn't be too bothered though - they weren't damaged during football. He was kneecapped for getting a bit too friendly with a gangsta's wife! - no im not joking! It was thought he'd never recover but he came back the season we got relegated and was exceptional, consistently brilliant! No knee problems or injuries to speak of since.

This season he's been indifferent. Sometimes a collosus, sometimes prone to mistakes. When I've watched him i've got the impression he's in a comfort zone and needs to step it up a level. He's a tremendoes talent and if he fulfills his potential could be one of the best centre halves in the premiership. We'll miss the guy desperately next season, Im almost certain if we'd had his services during our premiership campaign we'd have stayed up.


Thought he was supposed to sign this morning though!!!

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Joleon Lescott has moved closer to a move to Everton after passing a medical at Goodison Park.

The highly-rated stopper is set to move to The Toffees after the two clubs agreed a fee for the 23-year-old, following quickly in the footsteps of Crystal Palace striker Andy Johnson.

Although a number of clubs were tracking Lescott, including Premiership new-boys Reading, it was David Moyes' side who convinced Wolves to part with their prized possession.

The defender is widely regarded as one of the finest performers outside the top tier and will help bolster Everton's squad as they look to make an impact on the top half of the table in the coming season.

However talks still continue over the minutiae of the deal, with Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey insisting there is still work to be done with the Premiership side.

"The fee was agreed last week but, as ever, these things are never straight forward," Moxey told the club's official website.

"The devil is in the detail and discussions with Everton are ongoing.

"Joleon played in every game for Wolves last season and, as we expected, he has passed his medical and is fit to play."

The potential signing of Wolves central defender Joleon Lescott is in the balance after reported revelations during a medical.


The 23 year old agreed personal terms during the week after Everton and Wolves agreed a fee.

Lescott was set to become the club's second signing in less than a week pending the results of a medical. It is believed that the results have alerted Everton of a previous long term injury the defender had to his knee whilst at Wolves, which had kept him off the pitch for a full season.

Everton fans will instantly recall the episode regarding Mikael Forssell's proposed transfer from Chelsea which was abruptly cancelled due to a longstanding injury the Fin had been carrying.

The decision, although at the time was viewed by the frustrated Evertonians as wrong, paid off in the long term has Forssell failed to repeat the goalscoring exploits he had demonstrated in the past for Birmingham.

The club are reportedly keen to renegotiate the fee with Wolves as they are reluctant to pay what is believed to be near 5 million for a player carrying a threatening injury.


......or......

Wolves confirm Joleon Lescott has passed his medical and is set to join Everton.


The Wolves official website says he's passed the medical and agreed terms.

Everton are waiting for a second opinion on xrays of his knees before completing the deal and if they are ok he will sign on Monday, if its not ok then we will try and renegotiate staggered payments based on appearances.

Could be waiting for a second opinion, but Everton will have known all about him missing a season through knee injuries, I knew about it ages ago, when we were first rumoured to be interested - so I won't have come as a suprise.

Staggered payments wouldn't be a bad idea. But he has played two seasons of football since so I wouldn't have thought we would have much room to broker a deal.

Anyway, he sounds a very decent player. A defender, as Wolves fan 'player of the year' and one of the most highly respected center half in the Championship, are decent references in my opinion.

Coming from the Championship will have the drive to make it at Prem level.

Fingers crossed the deal is concluded on Monday.

Lescott transfer in danger of collapse Jun 5 2006


By Ian Doyle, Daily Post


JOLEON LESCOTT'S move to Everton was in the balance last night as doubts grow over the defender's long-term fitness.

The Goodison outfit will today decide whether to proceed with the 5million deal for the Wolverhampton Wanderers centre-back once they discover the findings of a series of stringent tests.

With Lescott due to sign a lengthy contract, Goodison officials requested an extra set of X-rays on Friday given the player's history of knee problems.

Goodison officials are believed to be unhappy with comments made by Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey over the weekend that stated Lescott had passed a medical.


"The devil is in the detail and discussions with Everton are ongoing," said Moxey. "Joleon played in every game for Wolves last season and, as we expected, he has passed his medical."


This is not the case, with Everton wary the Championship side are attempting to place pressure on them to push the transfer through.
