Middlesbrough battle to keep Chelsea, Spurs target Johnson with new deal

Middlesbrough have moved to secure winger Adam Johnson to a new contract.

The People says England Under-21 winger Johnson currently earns only around £2,500 a week at the Riverside, but has so far refused the club's bid to up that figure to £20,000.

The player believes he can attract a bigger club in the January window, but Boro boss Gordon Strachan is pulling out all the stops to keep him and the club have made a wage offer which is massive by Championship standards.

Chelsea, Fulham, Sunderland and Tottenham are among clubs chasing Johnson.
