Burnley FC are interested in bringing Middlesbrough winger, Adam Johnson to Turf Moor if the Sunday papers are to be believed this morning.
The 21-year old England Under 21 International will be out of contract in 12 months time and this is not the first time we have been linked with the player.
Owen Coyle was looking to loan the player in the 2008 January transfer window.
Things have changed somewhat since that time, with Middlesbrough being relegated to the Championship at the end of last season and the Clarets moving in the opposite direction so it will be interesting to see how much more muscle we now have with Johnson no doubt keen to return to the top flight.
Owen Coyle recently did not rule out the possibility of breaking our current transfer record (£1.3 million for Paterson) to get the players we want and the Sunday People has suggested we may have offered £2 million for the winger.
£2 million though is unlikely to tempt Middlesbrough to accept with the paper also suggesting the relegated club would be looking for more like £5 million!
Adam Johnson plays predominantly on the left wing but he can also play on the right flank.
The player came through Middlesbrough's Academy and has played 68 times for Boro scoring two goals. Johnson during his time at the Riverside has also been out on loan a couple of times. He was at Leeds United in October 2006 playing a handful of games during his month's loan.In September 2007 Johnson joined Championship side Watford on a three month loan and scored five times in 12 appearances before being recalled by Gareth Southgate.
