Aston Villa want to sign Manchester City's Adam Johnson on a season-long loan deal.

Aston Villa reportedly want to sign Manchester City's Adam Johnson on a season-long loan deal.

The winger has struggled to hold down a regular first-team place at Eastlands as City boss Roberto Mancini has concerns over his defensive ability.

Mancini is expected to sign Arsenal's Samir Nasri and Johnson could find his opportunities at City limited further as a result.

Alex McLeish sees the 24-year-old as an ideal addition to the Villa squad, where the England international could be offered regular first-team football.

The manager has brought in one winger this summer already with the £9.5m signing of Charles N'Zogbia from Wigan.

Villa are still keen to strengthen their midfield after Ashley Young left for Manchester United and Stewart Downing moved to Liverpool earlier this summer.
