Joleon Lescott leaves AEK Athens after less than three months

Former England international Joleon Lescott has left AEK Athens after less than three months.

The former Manchester City and Aston Villa defender joined the Greek club on August 29 but, after playing just four games, suffered a knee injury which was expected to sideline him for up to six months.

A brief tweet from the club on Thursday read: "AEK FC and Joleon Lescott mutual [sic] agreed the termination of his contract.''

Lescott, 34, has also played for West Brom, Everton and Wolves. He won 26 international caps between 2007 and 2013.
