Liverpool are on alert as four players will reportedly leave Manchester City this summer.
Joleon Lescott will depart on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Micah Richards is assessing his future after turning down the offer of a new contract as he moves towards the final year of his existing deal.
James Milner will face a similar decision when he moves into the final 12 months of his contract in June.
While £16million flop Jack Rodwell is deemed surplus to requirements, and would have returned to Everton on loan in January had City been able to bring in Porto midfielder Fernando as a replacement.
That will leave Joe Hart and Gael Clichy – who was nurtured by Arsenal – as the only players in City’s current 25-man squad who are eligible to be classed as “home-grown” according to Premier League regulations. (Daily Mirror)
