Adam Johnson Had Planned To Write An Open Letter To All Clubs Asking For A Second Chance

Adam Johnson Had Planned To Write An Open Letter To All Clubs Asking For A Second Chance

Adam Johnson is hoping to get a second chance if he is released from prison, next year.

The 31-year-old could be freed in March after serving half of his six-year sentence for child sex offences.

He still wants to ply his trade in professional football and was planning to write to teams 'begging' for a job.

However, the proposed idea didn't go down well with his family according to reports via Mirror and Daily Star.

Johnson's sister, Faye, reportedly told a friend: "He was going to write an open letter to all the clubs explaining why he can benefit them if they give him another chance,"

"Genuinely thought he was joking when he told me but he was deadly serious."

The left-footed winger has been playing football at HMP Moorland near Doncaster, South Yorkshire, to maintain his fitness ahead of potentially being snapped up by a club.

Johnson was on Sunderland's books before being jailed for grooming and sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.

He's also enjoyed spells at Middlesbrough, where he graduated from the youth academy, as well as Manchester City - winning the Premier League and FA Cup.

He's been capped by England 12 times, too, making his senior debut in 2010 against Mexico.

Further claims suggest Johnson is plotting to resurrect his footballing career away from Britain.

It appears he's eyeing up a move to Turkey, Middle East or China if a move within England fails to transpire.

Will Johnson receive a second chance?
