Manchester City confirm Lescott chase is still on
Manchester City manager Mark Hughes has not given up the chase for Joleon Lescott.
City have had two bids rejected for the Everton central defender but are still keen to secure his services.
Hughes denied reports he had walked away from the saga after his managerial counterpart David Moyes slated his behaviour.
"We are not at that point at this moment," said the City boss. "When we feel there is nowhere else to go and it is not going to happen, then we will walk away.
"We do not think we are quite at point as yet. Only time will tell."
Hughes is still in the market for fresh faces before the window closes.
He said: "We are just trying to go about our business and bring good players to the club.
"We have been successful in that respect. Almost all the players we hoped to bring we have been able to do.
"Some we have missed out on but that will always happen. That's a process you legislate for and make sure you have other targets.
"We have been quite active in the window but there is always speculation and I am sure that is not going to go away when it closes."
