Andy Johnson: Could head to Middle East

Johnson is out of contract this summer and the former England international's representative Anthony McFarlane has suggested Dubai is the preferred destination for him.

"It's something he has firmly been thinking about," said McFarlane. "He is now 31 and has never been in this situation in his career where he is available on a Bosman (free transfer).

"His mind is open and he's looking at all his options, both here in England and abroad. He is keen on a new challenge and very interested in a move to the UAE provided the offer is right.

"There have been no concrete offers as such at this moment in time, but there has been strong interest from a number of clubs in the Gulf area, including a couple from the UAE.

"Without a doubt, he is looking at it. It's just a case of weighing up his options and making sure he joins the right club."
