LUFC Grayson - Johnson is flourishing in new role

Despite placing midfielder Bradley Johnson on the transfer list recently, manager Simon Grayson believes he is flourishing in his new role.

The midfielder was placed on the transfer list earlier in the month after he failed to agree new terms at the club on a new deal.

Johnson is out of contract in the summer and looks to be heading out of the Elland Road doors when the January transfer window opens.

The 23 year old also came in for criticism from sections of the Elland Road fans when he was booed off in the home game with Crystal Palace at the start of the month.

Since then Johnson has enjoyed a good run of form and was pivotal in the wins over Burnley and Queens Park Rangers.

Grayson as been delighted with his form in recent weeks and believes he is doing a great job in his new role.

Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Grayson said, "He`s flourishing with the responsibility of playing centre midfield. He`s doing a job we are asking him to do, he`s strong, powerful, keeping things simple and not complicating the game."

Despite the glowing tribute from Grayson it looks like no new offer will be made to the midfielder and a number of Premiership clubs are also rumoured to be chasing Johnson, including Stoke, Bolton and Wigan

He was shocking against Reading and Palace but seems to have got his head down in recent weeks. Probably trying to impress prospective buyers rather than anything else.

He needs to play in the centre. Shuffling him about to the left does him no justice and it takes him a few games to get back into his natural game but its a pity it has taken us until he is going to persevere with him in that position.

Still want him out the door in January, a few good games don't make him a good player.

made plenty of mistakes at leicester yestoday

He is a good player who is improving - as young players tend to do who make a step up. He is one of only 7/8 of our squad that could make the the next step up. The "get Johnson out" brigade are fuelled by stories of his "greed" put out there by the greediest man in Elland Road (when he is not tax dodging in Monaco) Ken "how much can I make out of Leeds" Bates.
