Adam Johnson – I Grew Up Supporting Newcastle

It seems that Manchester City’s Adam Johnson may be made available in the summer and Newcastle could be interested in the Sunderland-born player.

Adam Johnson – could be available this summer

Adam was born in Sunderland to a family that were Sunderland supporters, but he turned out to be a Newcastle supporter, and even joined Newcastle when he was just 10 years old in 1997.

We’re not sure whether Newcastle will be interested in Adam, if he is put up for sale in the summer, which seems very likely, and it could be the fee would be too much for the England International.

Johnson joined Manchester City in January of 2010 for £7M from Middlesbrough,  and the fee is likely to be higher than that this summer.

This is what Adam has said about his youth and growing up before the Newcastle Chelsea game last November which we lost 3-0:

“I was at Newcastle when I was a kid from 10-12 before I went to Middlesbrough.” “So I grew up supporting Newcastle and David Ginola and players like that.”

“It’s fantastic to playing against north-east teams.”  “These are the type of games I want to be playing in.”

Not only did we lose that game, but we lost Seven Taylor for the season with his Achilles injury too.

Adam wants more first team football,  and he has played 96 times for Man City with 15 goals since joining them from Middlesbrough, and he has 10 England caps with two goals.

Comments welcome.
