Johnson: Set to move to a Premier League club after failing to agree a new contract at Leeds
Bradley Johnson is considering offers from the Premier League after Leeds United confirmed the midfielder is unlikely to sign a new contract.
The 24-year-old's current deal is due to expire next month and he has been offered terms to stay at Elland Road.
Whites boss Simon Grayson had previously been optimistic that he would be able to secure Johnson on a new deal, but he is now set to move on.
Leeds have confirmed two top-flight clubs have made offers for Johnson and the players is now weighing up his options.
Grayson told the club's official website: "It's disappointing that it looks like Bradley won't be re-signing. We felt we made the player a suitable offer.
"I'd like to thank Bradley for his contribution while I've been here, but the contractual situation that we work in nowadays means that players have the ability to make choices such as this.
"This is a situation we wanted resolving as a club because we are looking ahead to next season and planning ahead."
Bolton Wanderers, Stoke City, West Bromwich Albion and Wigan Athletic have all been linked with free transfer moves for Johnson.
