JOLEON Lescott was one of the landmark signings of a busy summer in 2014.

* The centre-half, who signed on a Bosman free transfer after leaving Manchester City, is currently contracted to Albion until summer 2016, with a further performance-related 12-month option.

* A double Barclays Premier League winner with City, Lescott also has 26 England caps to his name, FA Cup and League Cup winners' medals and a wealth of European competition experience.

* The Brummie started his career down the A41 with Wolverhampton Wanderers, making his debut as a 17-year-old against Sheffield Wednesday at Molineux in August 2000.

* He helped Wolves to promotion in 2003/04 but was forced to miss their campaign in the top flight due to a knee injury.

* He moved to Everton for £5million in August 2006, making his England debut for Steve McClaren's side in a 3-0 win against Estonia in October 2007.

* Lescott's form prompted Manchester City to splash out £22million for his services, where he was to become a key figure at the Etihad.

* By summer 2015, Lescott had made 536 club career appearances, netting 40 times. Before this season he had played 37 times for Albion, scoring once, against Queens Park Rangers in the 3-2 defeat at Loftus Road.
