Bhoys eye troubled midfielder.
SPL giants Celtic are interested in resurrecting the career of Manchester City flop Michael Johnson.
The Glasgow club want to bring Johnson, 24, to Celtic Park on an initial season-long loan deal with a view to buying the box-to-box midfielder for a cut price fee.
Johnson has made just 4 league appearances for City in the past four seasons, after being blighted by serious injuries and accusations of a bad attitude. He joined Leicester City on a season-long loan last July but managed just 7 appearances before injury forced him to return to the Etihad.
Johnson broke into the Manchester club’s first team in 2006 and starred the following season, scoring twice and earning rave reviews for his technique and work rate.
Celtic boss Neil Lennon is willing to offer Johnson a lifeline north of border and City are will listen to any offers for the midfielder, who is not set to be included in their 23-man squad for the new season.
