We have beat the transfer deadline and completed the signing of left winger Adam Johnson from Middlesbrough.
Johnson has signed a deal that will last until June 2014, the fee is believed to be around six million pounds although the club have only officially referred to the fee as undisclosed.
This is a good signing, Johnson is not a bad player at all. He has been impressive for the last couple of seasons and because of his good displays he has attracted the interest of Real Madrid and Chelsea as well as a host of other clubs.
It is good to see City sign another good young British player, that can only help us considering the rule that is due to come in on having a set amount of home growns in your match day squad.
I am pleased with this signing especially considering we signed him for a fee that could prove to be a snip should Johnson reach his full potential, hopefully he can come straight into the team and maybe even push for a World Cup place.
What do you think? Are you a Johnson fan?
