Manchester City have included Michael Johnson in their offer to West Ham United for midfielder Scott Parker.

The Times says City have offered about £4 million plus the England Under-21 midfield player, who signed a new five-year contract in September, when he was attracting interest from Everton and Arsenal.

Johnson, 20, gained recognition for the form that he showed at the start of last season but a pelvic injury has restricted him to eight appearances this campaign.

West Ham turned down City’s initial £15 million combined bid for Parker and Craig Bellamy last week.
