Johnson linked with return
West Ham are rumoured to be interested in out-of-favour Chelsea defender Glen Johnson. The Academy graduate, who left for £6 million after West Ham's relegation, is tipped to travel back across London for the unlikely price of £3 million. Given the likelihood of Tomas Repka leaving the club at the end of the current season, and the lack of dedicated cover in that position, West Ham could make a move for Johnson in January. They first would have to hope that Harry Redknapp does not make his rumoured loan move for the right-back.
