Wales coach Page: Nottingham Forest winger Johnson rejected Prem January offers

Wales coach Rob Page says Nottingham Forest winger Brennan Johnson turned down the chance to move to the Premier League in January.

Leeds United and Brentford were both linked with a move for Johnson, with the latter having reportedly made two separate bids for him.

The 20-year-old has been in superb form for Forest during his first full year in the Championship, netting 11 goals and providing five assists. Speaking to the Independent, Wales boss Page thinks his decision to remain the Championship 'speaks volumes' about his character.

He said: “Brennan could potentially have had a move in January. But he decided to stay because he's at a club where he was going to play and enjoy his football. That speaks volumes about him.

"He didn't go chasing the money."
