Lescott, who angered the Villa faithful by branding their relegation a “weight off the shoulders” of the squad in the immediate aftermath, is likely to be one of a number of players to move on in the summer following the drop down to the Championship.

Besiktas were linked with Lescott prior to his 2014 switch to West Brom and Fotospor say the Turkish outfit could reignite their interest this summer, if they miss out on Cristian Zapata of AC Milan.

Besiktas are already reported to have agreed terms with Villa’s Aly Cissokho and Lescott could well be following the full-back to Istanbul in the summer.
