Joleon Lescott signs for FOURTH-TIER Racing Murcia as Manchester City title winner heads for Spain aged 38, three years after retiring... but he could play just ONE GAME before leaving!

Retired former England defender Joleon Lescott has made a shock move to Spanish fourth-tier side Racing Murcia.

The Birmingham-born centre back, who is now 38, played 26 times for England and won two league titles, an FA Cup and a League Cup whilst at Manchester City.

Lescott also played for Wolves, Everton and West Bromwich Albion in a career which began in 2000, but he stopped playing after leaving Sunderland in June 2017.

Lescott played 26 times for England, scoring once against France at the Euro 2012 tournament
