Aston Villa defender explains why he rejected move to LA Galaxy

Former Manchester City and Everton center-back Joleon Lescott said he decided against joining LA Galaxy in January because he did not want to “jump ship” as Aston Villa battle relegation.

The 33-year old midfielder have moved to Villa Park from West Bromwich Albion on a two-year contract in the summer, but the former England international has endured a miserable time, with the club currently bottom of the Premier League, having taken only 16 points from 26 games.

Last month Galaxy have expressed an interest in taking the centre-back to Major League Soccer, but he said he is determined to fight to the end to keep Villa in the top flight.
