Manchester City midfielder Adam Johnson is believed to be in line to make a surprise loan move to Newcastle United in January.

The 23-year-old has previously admitted he was unhappy with making cameo appearances instead of starting on a regular basis for the Eastlands club.

However, despite the winger having since pledged his allegiance to City, News of the World claims Newcastle could move in to take the player on a loan deal.

It is thought the Tyneside club could look to play the midfielder with fellow young England international Andy Carroll.

Adam Johnson is reportedly not too happy about finding himself bench bound at Eastlands and has also apparently had run ins with Roberto Mancini that had left the England winger wondering whether he had a future at Manchester City.

Chris Hughton would no doubt love the chance to bring in £15m rated Johnson to St James’ Park but would such a deal really be on the table in January? Whilst the 23 year old may not be a first team regular he would still be a player who Mancini rates as being able to add creativity to his stumbling City side so a move would appear to be unlikely, not least because the former Middlebrough man only arrived in nine months ago.

The talented wide man has started just five Premier League matches this season and it would appear likely that many clubs would be interested in acquiring the services of the Sunderland born youngster if indeed Man City choose to offload him.
