TALKSPORT RADIO is reporting Manchester City will allow Michael Johnson to move to Leeds United on loan in a bid to rebuild his wrecked career.
Johnson is currently battling back from a serious knee injury that has kept him out of action for two years. The midfielder reckons he will be fit within a month but Roberto Mancini does not want to rush his return to the City team.
Johnson will have a fight on his hands to get back in to City's star-studded midfield and the club will let him move to Elland Road in January in a loan move until the end of the season.
Leeds have reassured City that they will not ask too much of Johnson when he returns but Simon Grayson has assured Mancini that the 22-year-old will have a part to play in their promotion push.
