Fulham are prepared for a tug-of-war to keep striker Andy Johnson as Newcastle United and Sunderland prepare summer bids.

The former Everton and Crystal Palace forward has just returned to full fitness and scored in the 2-2 draw against Aston Villa.

Newcastle and Sunderland are in the market for a striker after Andy Carroll and Darren Bent make big-money moves away from the north-east in January.

Both clubs are monitoring the progress of the 29-year-old, who has 18 months left on his contract, and could be available for around £8 million.

But Fulham are not prepared to see Johnson go without a fight and want to sit down with the striker and sign a new contract.
