Adam Johnson agrees to new City deal

BY foxsports • November 16, 2011

Adam Johnson has signed a new deal at Manchester City until 2015.

The England winger has been in talks with City over a new deal for a number of months, despite having two-and-half-years left on his previous deal.

He has now put pen-to-paper on a new long-term contract with the club, he joined in January 2010 from Middlesbrough, and is committed until 2015.

The 24-year-old has played over 50 first-team games and has established himself as a firm fans' favourite.

Since his move he has also established himself as a regular in the England squad, and as a result City have now rewarded him for his progress.

Johnson has admitted he has to battle for his first-team place at the Etihad Stadium, but speculation had seen him linked with a loan move to a Premier League rival.

But now both Johnson and City will hope any question over his future at the club will have been put to bed with the signing of a new deal.
