Wednesday, 7th Apr 2021 17:47

Town and Portsmouth have been linked with Feyenoord central defender George Johnston, who is currently on loan at Wigan Athletic.

According to Football Insider, the Blues and Pompey are both eyeing a summer move for Johnston, who has impressed for the Latics having joined them in January.

The 22-year-old Manchester-born defender, who has been capped by Scotland at U20 and U21 levels, started his career with Liverpool’s academy before moving on to Feyenoord in August 2019. He made one Eredivisie start and three sub appearances for the Rotterdam side in the first half of this season.

Johnston, who is out of contract in the summer but with Feyenoord to having an option for a further season, has made 12 starts and three sub appearances scoring once for Wigan, whose caretaker-manager, Leam Richardson, is Town boss Paul Cook’s former Latics, Portsmouth and Chesterfield assistant and who has been tipped for a role at Portman Road next season.

We'll be linked with every Wigan and Portsmouth player over the next few months. Messi, Hazard and Grealish are also on our radar! Messi playing off Norwood would be a joy, and the interchanging of Dozzell and Hazard has me salivating.Toto alongside Varane would be the icing. As always, my feet are firmly planted and I'm keeping it realistic!!

Whoever we maybe linked with we now have a chance of bringing some fresh air into this stagnating club, i wonder what the previous owners crawlers are going to do now that they can't bypass the manager!!?? time to go overpaid lazy money takers.

Not sure what to expect on Saturday. They've all been playing with the monkey on their backs haven't they, and now most of them are looking at the exit. Weird situation...

Think you will find in the last three or four games, if it looks like we are in league one for another season certain players will start playing out of their skins.

I’m pretty sure that the players were aware of the takeover sometime ago which begs the question why didn’t they fight to win games. I’m of the opinion that many are well aware that they are out of the door and have already put their towels by the pool. I’m excited for the future and so impressed with how the new owners interviewed. They have a clear vision which I believe mirrors that of the fans.

Linkboy , i really dont think they have it in them, so it will be much the same until the end of season. IMO It would be good to get rid of most of these players,and make a fresh start now with new owners & manager, Any of the players that have failed this season will be quickly turned on if they stay and cant lift their game. We dont have any players that are above average Lge 1 players .We need to get out of this league next season ,we need to raise the bar SECOND BEST IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH, we NEED WINNERS,
