Johnson appears resigned to Liverpool exit

Liverpool defender Glen Johnson has dropped a hint he could be on his way out of the club with his contract up at the end of the season and no talk of a new deal, according to Sky Sports.

Johnson is in his sixth season at Anfield having signed for £18m from Portsmouth back in 2009 – and has made 183 appearances in that time.

Fresh talks have not been attempted by the club to secure Johnson’s future with the Reds, after a breakdown in negotiations over the summer when discussions were held between the two parties.

It was thought the player was not willing to accept a proposed wage cut to sign any new deal, and the right back could now leave on a free after saying he would not “go crawling to anybody”.

He said: “I have enjoyed the majority of the six years; I’ve had some good times and some bad times, but if I haven’t got a contract then I can’t stay.

“Of course it plays on your mind but that is when you have to be professional and try to do a job for your team, and I respect my team-mates and I want to put in a performance for them.

“I want to play for a club that wants me – I am not going to go crawling to anybody. The club know where I am and they know the situation.”

Johnson showed he was committed to the cause despite uncertainty surrounding his footballing future by scoring a brave winner for the Reds at the weekend.

And the defender ruled out contact with another club at the current time, wanting to continue to focus on positive performances for the club and honour his contract in the meantime.
