City midfielder Johnson signs new five-year deal

Manchester City midfielder Michael Johnson has signed a new five-year contract with the club.

The England Under-21 international has ended months of speculation over his future and is now tied to the club until 2013, having earned rave reviews since breaking into the City first team two years ago.

Arsenal and Liverpool were among those believed to have been monitoring the academy graduate's progress, but with City on the brink of a new era on the back of an impending takeover by the Abu Dhabi-based United Group for Development and Investment, Johnson has opted to commit his future to the Eastlands outfit.

The 20-year-old had been an ever-present for the Blues until Saturday's defeat to Chelsea, when he was ruled out with a groin injury, and has been compared to City legend Colin Bell in his style of play.

The news will please City fans keen to keep hold of fellow young talent like Micah Richards and Joe Hart in the midst of the revolution at the club and tying Johnson down to a long-term deal should bolster the side for the coming season.

Mark Hughes' squad will now head to Cyprus for Thursday's UEFA Cup clash against Omonia Nicosia, hoping to have Johnson available.
