Injury-ravaged midfielder targets move to high-flying Whites

Manchester City midfielder Michael Johnson has revealed he would love to move to Leeds United on loan. The 22-year-old former England Under-21 international has been in the wilderness at Eastlands in the last few years, after bursting onto the scene for the Blues in 2008. Johnson has suffered a series of knee injuries that have seen his fitness and form suffer as a result, and he could be shipped out by Roberto Mancini to get some games under his belt. Leeds are currently second in the Championship following an impressive win over QPR on Saturday, and Johnson admits he has always been a fan of the club. "You can't pick or choose but I've always been a Leeds fan," he said in the Sunday Express. "I'd love to play for them and a loan deal would be an ideal scenario." Leeds could be persuaded to make a move for the midfielder this winter, as Simon Grayson looks to make it back-to-back promotions for the Whites.
