Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has confirmed that Adam Johnson, who has been linked with Liverpool and Sunderland, could be on his way out of the club this month.

25-year-old Johnson had already admitted last season that he would be prepared to leave the Etihad Stadium this summer should his international chances be hampered by a lack of first-team football.

The former Middlesbrough midfielder last week hinted that he is ready to seek a move, and Mancini has admitted it could happen before the transfer window closes.

"Adam wants to go to play. We are waiting for the next ten days to find a solution for him," he told reporters.

"If we find a good solution Adam can go to play. I think this is better because he is young, he’s a good guy and he deserves to play always and here it is not possible.

"We’ll wait ten days. If after ten days we don’t find a solution for him he’ll stay here. He’s happy and maybe he can have more chances."

Everton and Sunderland are keen on Johnson, while Crunchsports.com understands that there is still interest from Anfield.

Sunderland are frontrunners to sign Johnson, and Mancini added: "He can have a future here but you have to understand when you are 25-years-old you want to play always.

"If he decides he wants to play always I agree with him and if he wants to leave I am sorry because I think he is a good guy and is different player from the other striker and wingers, but I understand he wants to play."
