'If It's Football, It's Vital'

LUFC Premier player wants Leeds loan

Manchester City midfielder Michael Johnson says he would love the opportunity of a loan spell with Leeds United.

The 22 year old has suffered a number of set backs with injury since first breaking into the City side in 2007.

The midfielder suffered an abdominal injury that required a hernia operation and that forced him to miss much of the 2007/08 and 2008/09 season.

He struggled to break back into the side during 2009/10 season but suffered a serious knee injury that ruled him out for nearly eleven months.

Johnson as now returned to full fitness and with a lack of first team opportunities at City he is looking for a loan period away from Eastlands to gain some much-needed first team action.

Johnson would love a spell at the club he`s supported since a boy, speaking in the Sunday Express, Johnson said, 'You can't pick or choose but I've always been a Leeds fan.
'I'd love to play for them and a loan deal would be an ideal scenario.'

Johnson has represented England at both under 19 and 21 levels, so far during his career.

He looked well on his way to a good career at City and he produced some fine performances during the 2007/08.

So far he`s made fourty five appearances, scoring three goals during his City career.

I thought he was a good player when he first broke through but it looks like he's best mates with Andy Robinson since his injuries!

Snap him up.. what we want is local/fans/players of the club who will give their all every match... Grayson prime example of this. If we are to go up next season we need a team like Blackpool have, hungry, no prima donas just good local talent with a desire to play for Leeds until they die

If it's just match practice he's lacking and not fitness in general, this could be an ideal signing.

A good player, we should take him on loan for the rest of the season as it will take a month to get him upto match fitness.
