Advocaat to recall Johnson for Sunderland derby clash

New Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat could recall Adam Johnson for the derby with Newcastle United.

Sunderland banned Johnson, 27, pending the outcome of a police investigation after he was arrested on March 2 on suspicion of sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.

On Tuesday Johnson's bail was extended by five weeks until April 23.

The club said in a statement: "Following the decision by the police, the club will be reviewing its position."
