Johnson poised to pen new deal

Manchester City winger Adam Johnson is close to signing a new contract that will keep him at the club until 2015.

Johnson, 24, arrived at Eastlands from Middlesbrough in a £7 million move in January 2010 and his excellent performances in the second half of the 2009-10 season saw him come close to making England's World Cup squad.

While an unquestionable raw talent, Johnson has found himself regularly scrutinised by Roberto Mancini - with the City boss often publicly criticising the fleet-footed winger.

But Mancini's belief in the England international has never been in doubt and the Italian recently said: "If he were not a good player, I wouldn't waste my time on him. But, because he has everything, I don't want him stopping at this level."

Johnson has scored nine goals in 66 games for City, with four of those coming this season.
