Johnson happy to stay with Blues

Published Add your comment

Birmingham central defender Roger Johnson has ended speculation about his future by insisting he will stay for as long as Alex McLeish wants him.

Johnson, 27, has been the subject of reports linking him with a transfer away from St Andrew's. But the former Cardiff player is relishing the challenge of Birmingham building on last Sunday's Carling Cup triumph over Arsenal.

Johnson, who moved to Blues in a £5million deal, said: "I knew the club was going in the right direction and, yes, I'm happy here. Until the manager wants me gone, then I'm here."

He added: "I'm looking forward to going forward with Birmingham. I have enjoyed it here and I am still enjoying every minute of it now.

"Moments like last weekend at Wembley were the reason why I came here.

"Now another big plus point in anyone's career will be playing in Europe. We will enjoy that when it comes around."
