A nice interview in the Northern Echo with Adam Johnson in which he discusses his time at Middlesbrough and reasons for the move (and mentions interest from both Wolves and Sunderland), and in which talked a little about looking ahead to his time at the club:
"It’s a big club, where I will learn and improve playing alongside top players every day. I want to achieve as much as I can in the game, I want to play in Europe, the Champions League and win trophies. At Manchester City I can do that.
"I’m totally prepared for the change. I actually think a move like this would have happened a few years back but I didn’t really get my chance while Stewart Downing was around."
"It’s strange how I have joined when Robinho has left, it’s amazing to think I’m filling the hole left by the most expensive footballer in British football. I can’t wait."
