Sunderland winger Adam Johnson admits he regrets his time at Manchester City.

The £10million winger returns to the Etihad following his summer switch to Sunderland determined to prove a point to former boss Roberto Mancini.

Johnson said: "Now if I was a young lad I wouldn't go to City. It's not that you're not good enough, it's just that the likes of Yaya Toure are going to play ahead of you no matter what you do.

"I'd advise young, young English players that you won't get the chance to play as much as you like."
