Johnson, 27, joined Boro from Oxford for £3million last summer but made just six starts for the Riverside club last season.

The Blues, Hull and Birmingham are all said to have shown an interest in the left winger, who has also spent time at Motherwell and Kidderminster.

MailOnline report Johnson happy to fight for his place under Tony Pulis, with Middlesbrough needing to take a hit on the £3million now-Birmingham boss Garry Monk paid for him a year ago.

A loan or permanent departure is said to be possible.
