£5m+ Johnson out of Watford's reach

£5m+ Johnson out of Watford's reach

For those Glory Hornet followers who reckon Sir Aidy Boothroyd should wave some used notes under the nose of boro boss Gareth Southgate in return for Adam Johnson, well, think again guys.

Middlesborough have issued a strict 'hands off` warning to potential suiters of the England U21 star and are expected to turn down a £5.5m bid from Tottenham for the nippy winger, who had such an impact at Vicarage Road.

'Jinky` Johnson is believed to top of Juande Ramos` hitlist of players for the January window and is prepared to throw money at a player he considers critical in finally filling the void down the left side.

But an Riverside insider (say that after a glass or two of Xmas mulled wine!) reckons 'the winger is going nowhere`!

£5.5m for a player who was back on the bench at the weekend? Blimey, makes Young Ashley`s switch to Aston Villa look cheap.
