Lescott signed a two-year contract with West Brom on Friday, the club's official web site reports.

Lescott moves over on a free transfer from Manchester City, where he spent the last five seasons. He is the team's first signing since naming Alan Irvine manager last week. Lescott fell out of favor at City, and should see significantly more playing time for the Baggies next season, although his fantasy value remains limited.

Lescott underwent a medical with West Brom on Thursday, reports Sky Sports.

Lescott was released by Manchester City at the end of the season. Interest in him was coming from Hull and Stoke, but this medical would suggest that he is close to agreeing to joining West Brom. Speculation would say the defender may sign a two-year deal with the club.

Lescott has become a target of MLS side Portland Timbers, who are believed to have offered him a multi-million dollar contract to move to the U.S., MLSSoccer.com reports.

Lescott is a free agent right now after being released by Manchester City. Premier League sides Aston Villa, West Ham and QPR are reportedly interested as well, and he reportedly turned down an offer from Galatasaray in Turkey last month. Lescott, 31, still has plenty left in the tank, and may be tempted by the money he's being offered by the Timbers.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Lescott, who recently picked up a knock, was an unused substitute for Saturday's scoreless draw at Norwich City.

Lescott has not seen any Premier League action since Boxing Day, sitting on the sideline for six straight matches. Fit or not, he's a very very limited fantasy option.

Manchester City manager Manuel Pelligrini said that Lescott will be going nowhere this transfer window, reports Sky Sports.

Speculation about Lescott leaving has been growing as the transfer window approached, but Pelligrini said the defender is a very important player for the club. West Ham is one of the clubs believed to be interested in signing the defender.

Lescott started for the second straight game to start off the season during Manchester City's 3-2 loss to Cardiff City on Sunday.

Manchester City's defenders have been plagued with injury to start the season. While Matija Nastasic (ankle) appears close to returning, Vincent Kompany (groin) remains out meaning Lescott should continue to see regular playing time.

Lescott is expected to move into the Starting XI next to Vincent Kompany, with the news that Matija Nestasic (ankle) will miss the next four-to-six weeks, the Daily Mail reports.

Lescott's fantasy value increases immediately for the beginning of the season, although it's difficult to see him holding onto the position once Nastasic returns to full health.
