Adam Johnson Joins City Revolution

Manchester City FC are delighted to confirm the signing of 22-year-old Adam Johnson.

Johnson signed from Middlesbrough just before the 5pm deadline on a four-and-a-half deal and will wear the number 11 shirt.

Johnson came on the scene aged 12 and has been at Boro for 10 years. He is a left winger who is capable of playing on the right wing known for his dribbling skills and free kicks.

'The former England Under-21 winger, who has signed a contract until June 2014, steps straight into Roberto Mancini's squad against Hull on Saturday. He will wear the traditional No.11.'

'Manager Roberto Mancini said: 'We are delighted that Adam has chosen to come here. He is a very good player with fantastic potential, and as a club we are always keen to sign British talent.'

Welcome to the City revolution Adam.

Really impressed when he's played for the U21's, got a proper engine in him, skilfull, not afraid to get stuck in. Best signing of this window by far, Welcome to Manchester Adam!

I'm chuffed. He's a good young prospect with a great work-ethic. A short term cover for Robi (hopefully) and a long term replacement for rigsby.

Best signing of the window - that doesn't say much for this window does it?

saw the interview on the OS site and the lad seems very grounded - he can also play both left and right wing which is fantastic aswell as fitting in with the new ruling next season.

Good young player, but not the established type you've been signing lately. Must say I'm a little surprised. I predict he'll be at a smaller club within two years. He doesn't suit your ambitions.

I'm happy with this signing - young, English and great potential.

Johnson will get a game because bellamy plays every other match, petrov is inconsistant, swp id badly out of form. Johnson can play either flank, has a dynamic style and hes defensively good - unlike swp and petrov. The kid will shine in the near future. City cant sign superstars all the time. We need youth for the future and johnson is very talented. In my opinion hes a miles better dribbler than bellamy, swp, petrov. City and robinho both know the brasilian will be sold in the summer. Dont be fooled.

Radders - would you prefer he stayed at Boro, struggling in mid table in the Championship? no waste of talent there eh?

The people saying he won't get a game at City are the same sort who believe we have 15 strikers (when recently we struggled at times to have one decent striker available). With Petrov on the outs (contract expiring, no mention of a new one), that would leave us with one left winger (Johnson) and three right wingers (SWP, Weiss, Johnson again) barring new signings. Yeah, Johnson has no chance. :P

you have to many attackers in your squad which isn't as good as villas and you haven't got as good midfield as villa and you defence is poor and I'll give you credit for given.

Avfc94 we do - If Villa are so much better why are they a point behind City having played a game more?

I wouldnt swap any of city players for villa'a run-all-day-no-skill type players. They can keep their long ball tactics aswell.
