Bradley Johnson

Bradley Johnson - good riddance?

Bradley Johnson has been transfer listed by Leeds United. The midfielder has been stalling over a new deal and has apparently refused Leeds’ final offer.

Leeds United CEO Shaun Harvey issued a statement:

“We are disappointed that Bradley has not accepted our offer, but we were pleased to be assured that we can count on his 100 per cent commitment while ever he is a player at this club.”

Johnson has had a mixed season, recently scoring at both ends in the game against Hull City. Should Leeds receive an acceptable offer Johnson will be allowed to leave Elland Road in the January transfer window.

It seems strange that Bradley Johnson would demand more money from Ken Bates as there will only ever be one winner in that situation. It also seems unlikely that Johnson will walk into a side better than Leeds as his performances are frequently subject to criticism. It’s a sensible move to cash in on an average player, especially if he doesn’t really want to play for the club. Hopefully, should a sale go through, it will provide more funds to bring in a better replacement in January.

It seems as if most fans agree that it would be good to cash in on Bradley, a recent TSS poll showing 60% in favour of offloading the inconsistent midfielder in the new year.
