Rumour Mill-Adam Johnson

It is reported in the media today that the Clarets are trying to bring Middlesbrough winger Adam Johnson to Turf Moor on loan.

However it is understood that a number of other Championship clubs are chasing the player including Watford, Wolves and Sheffield Wednesday.

The 20 year old Sunderland born winger came through the Middlesbrough Academy to make the first team and he made a debut for the club at age 17 in March 2005 against Sporting Lisbon in a UEFA Cup tie. His first Premiership game came almost six months later against Arsenal. He deputised for an injured Stewart Downing that day and helped them to a 2-1 home victory. He has made over 35 appearances since that time.

Watford could be favourites to sign him as the player was recently on loan to the Hornets for three months after agreeing a loan deal in September 2007. The player has also had a short one month loan spell at Leeds in October 2006.

Sounds interesting but not sure he would come to us with the likes of Watford after him

Vital Watford editor saying following: "Watford would be favourites to land Middlesborough winger Adam Johnson on loan should he become available despite heavy interest from Wolves, Crystal Palace, Leicester and Sheffield Wednesday. Neil Warnock may well be keen to talke to Jinky's representatives about a switch to Selhurst but Hornets gaffer Aidy Boothroyd has already been in regular contact with Gareth Southgate with regard the England U21 winger... And has been assured by the Middlesborough boss that Johnson will head for Vicarage Road if he goes anywhere in the near future! Boothroyd said "If the opportunity came up then we will be the first ones in line… I have spoken to Gareth at length on a couple of occasions but he wants to keep him [Johnson] there at the minute and that`s fair enough". Johnson was a revelation during his 2-month loan spell with the Hornets earlier in the season, scoring 5 and creating bagfuls of chances in his 11 games before recalled back to the Riverside early. But the talented wideman has been a bit part player for the Premier League outfit since his return to the fold - managing only 91 minutes of action since December!"
