Johnson moves from Middlesbrough to Manchester City
Manchester City signed Middlesbrough winger Adam Johnson in the last few minutes of the transfer window last night.
The former England Under-21 winger, who had been the subject of a previous bid from City, passed a medical yesterday afternoon and has signed a contract until June 2014.
No fee has been announced but it has been reported Middlesbrough will get around £7million for him.
“We are delighted that Adam has chosen to come here,” City manager Roberto Mancini said last night.
“He is a very good player with fantastic potential, and as a club we are always keen to sign British talent.”
Johnson said he believed it was time for him to leave his “comfort zone” on Teesside to become a better player.
“There has been a lot of speculation about me but I'm just glad to get it done and be signed and ready to go,” he said.
“There are a lot of reasons (for the move). City are a club going places and they are doing very well.”
