Manchester City are ready to hand winger Adam Johnson a new contract.

Johnson will get a new contract from Manchester City worth around £65,000 a week.

The England international is getting his money bumped up from about £25,000 a week after impressing City manager Roberto Mancini.

Mancini was concerned that midfielder Johnson might lose his focus after gatecrashing the England set-up, but he has done enough to convince Mancini he deserves a new four-year deal.

Johnson, 23, a £7million capture from Middlesbrough, scored for England in this season's Euro ties against Bulgaria and Switzerland.
