A source close to Crystal Palace striker Andrew Johnson has revealed that, should Palace fail to make it back to the Premiership through this season’s play-off’s, he would welcome a move to Everton – citing Premiership football as his main ambition.
The striker, who was on the verge of becoming a regular England squad member before Palace were relegated, admirably stayed loyal to his club and stayed at the club, swayed by Simon Jordan’s insistance that Palace could bounce straight back to the Premiership.
Things haven’t quite gone to plan, however, and Palace find themselves scrapping it out amongst the Play-off hopefulls with no automatic promotion places left.
Johnson scored 22 goals in the Premiership last season, and has fired home 16 times for Palace in the Championship this season – an achievement which will catch the eye of David Moyes, who had a Â£6m bid rejected for Johnson earlier this season.
However, if the player wants a move away from Palace to play Premiership football, a bid of Â£6m may well buy more than just his left boot as quoted by Palace chairman Simon Jordan previously.
