England winger signs at City

Published Add your comment

Adam Johnson has reportedly agreed to sign a new contract with Manchester City.

According to, the England winger has put pen to paper on a long-term deal, with other reports suggesting he will earn £80,000-per-week.

Johnson signed for City from Middlesbrough in January 2010 for a fee in the region of £7 million to become the first acquisition during the tenure of Roberto Mancini.

He has since played over 50 first-team games for City and become a regular member of Fabio Capello's England squads.

The 24-year-old has, however, struggled to hold down a regular starting spot at the Etihad Stadium and Mancini is desperate to see Johnson move up a level.

"If he was not a good player, then I wouldn't waste my time saying this," the City boss said last month.

"But I do as he has everything, I don't want him stopping at this level. I want him up a level — then a level more.

"If he can continue to work hard and to improve he can be one of the best wingers in Europe."
