Not Coming to QPR? - Middlesbrough's Adam Johnson

Hopefully Gareth Southgate is just saying this!

Goal.com/Peter Staunton - Southgate: Johnson Staying Put
Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate has dismissed any rumours linking winger Adam Johnson with a move away from the Riverside Stadium.
The 20-year old has appeared only 44 times for Boro since 2004 and has found himself loaned out over the past two seasons, to Leeds United and Watford respectively.
Johnson enjoyed a degree of success at Vicarage Road this term; he scored five times in only 12 appearances.
He had this week been linked with a transfer to UEFA Cup finalists Rangers and Championship side QPR, however, Southgate sees the wide-man as a part of his plans for next season.
He said: “Despite what has appeared in some papers we have not had a single approach from any club about Adam Johnson, we have had absolutely no contact about Adam from either Rangers or QPR, nor do we expect to have any.

As I have made it clear, he remains a big part in my plans for the club. Adam is a fantastic talent and I do not want to see him leave. He could be very, very special and I would not want to see him play for another club.” - Goal.com
