Lescott Signing Imminent?

Today’s Bristol Evening Post reports Atkins is in talks with Stockport County midfielder Aaron Lescott.

Former Aston Villa trainee Lescott impressed while on a loan spell at the Memorial Stadium at the tail end of last season and expressed his desire to join the Gas.

However, this all depended on him negotiating a severance deal with his current employers Stockport County, a deal which failed to materialise. A move to Rovers looked dead and buried with the close season signings of Hunt, Trollope, Disley and Campbell.

Talks have now been revived as the harsh reality of a season in Stockport’s reserves hits home. Atkins describes Lescott as a dog in midfield, but with the budget surely already spent, much must depend on Atkins ability to move on the likes of Ijah Anderson and Sonny Parker. It wouldn’t surprise me if Dave Savage was being asked to consider a move too.

This correspondent’s mouth waters at the prospect of a Campbell, Disley, Lescott midfield trio.
