AFC Telford United are not set to sign ex-England international and two-time Premier League winner Joleon Lescott, sources at the club have revealed.

The 35-year-old defender is without a club after being released from Sunderland at the end of last season – and he trained with the Bucks a couple of times earlier this term.

In the wake of signing former Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, there has been social media speculation which suggested Telford were close to snapping up the old Molineux favourite – who has also had spells with Everton, Manchester City, West Brom, Aston Villa and AEK Athens.

But the Bucks concede it is highly unlikely that he will join and rumours of him signing this week are wide of the mark.
