City fans will be absolutely gutted to see MJ go, on the grounds that he has bags of potential. Unfortunately, there are a lot of unsavoury rumours about the player's attitude and off-field activities. Magpies could have a future world-class player or a sick-note with a bad attitude. Good luck with him if he signs!

this wont happen. The article suggests that he's got a pen in his hand ready to sign... he's still in manchester !

Thankfully this was all speculation, and City have now turned down an £8m pound bid for Johnson. Bad luck Geordies, but Nolan is a similar sort of player who will do a good job for you. Perhaps not as good as Johnson. but at least he's fit and experienced.
