Blues have Johnson bid accepted by Cardiff

Blues have Johnson bid accepted by Cardiff

Birmingham are set for contract talks with Roger Johnson after agreeing a fee with Cardiff for the highly rated defender.

The 26-year-old has been one of Alex McLeish`s number one targets this summer and now Cardiff have finally accepted a bid.

Johnson will now open negotiations with Blues.

Speaking earlier Cardiff chairman Peter Ridsdale admitted: 'A fee of £5million, subject to how it's paid, is a figure where we'd have to put it to Roger.

'I've had informal feedback from Roger that he would like to talk to a Premier League side.'

Reports claim Birmingham will pay £2m up front.

McLeish's priority is clearly defence. As well as Johnson you've got Hart on a loan and the impressive Giovanny Espinoza. on a two year deal. When I say impressive, he certainly was at the World Cup in 2006 when he was nominated for the best XI from the tournament. Since then he had a try at moving to Europe, to Holland, but it didn't work out for him and he moved back to South America.
