Remember Adam Johnson? He was apparently the subject of some serious interest from Real Madrid. Well, the papers have been quick to link us to the left winger in the past and it looks as if the transfer  merry-go-round is about to spring into action again.

Only I’m not sure there’s too much in this. Fulham look fairly well covered in the midfield positions and I doubt Johnson would want to move to us if they were bigger clubs interest. This all presupposes that Middlesbrough would be inclined to sell rather than keep one of their brightest prospects to boost their promotion push. I doubt Gordon Strachan would have taken the job if transfer funds were dependent on him selling Boro’s best players.

Chalk this one up as a ‘we can dream’ I think.
