Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has ruled out a loan move away from the club in January.
The England star, 30, is currently out-of-favour with Roberto Mancini at the Etihad Stadium and has only made 16 appearances in all competitions this season.
And, despite interest from Aston Villa, a spokesman for the players has insisted he isn’t looking for a temporary move away from the Premier League champions.
A statement read: "Joleon Lescott has ruled out the possibility of any loan move during the January transfer window," said the statement.
"Despite speculation linking him with several Premier League clubs, Joleon has no desire to leave Manchester City."
