The centre-back's contract expires at the end of this season and he is aware his future does not lie at the Etihad after being told there will be no extension.

Lescott insists he bears no grudge towards City as he prepares to leave the club he's been at since 2009, and he has not ruled out a move abroad.

"My days at City are numbered but there is no bad feeling. I've known for a while but there is no resentment," the 31-year-old said.

"I know my contract won't be renewed, so every performance I've put in this season has been like being in the shop window.

"Hopefully someone is watching and wants to sign me.

"I wouldn't rule out a move a move abroad. I need to weigh up my options and see what is best for me and my family."
