Transfer News: Fulham striker Andy Johnson would consider playing in the United Arab Emirates

Fulham striker Andy Johnson has admitted that he is considering making a move to the United Arab Emirates.

The 31-year-old has been linked with a reunion at QPR with former Whites manager Mark Hughes.

Johnson is out of contract at Craven Cottage and his agent Anthony McFarlane has however revealed that he could move to the Middle East.

“It’s something he has firmly been thinking about,” McFarlane told Sport360.

“He is now 31, and he has never been in this situation in his career where he is available on a Bosman.

“His mind is open and he’s looking at all his options, both here in England and abroad. He is keen on a new challenge and very interested in a move to the UAE provided the offer is right.

“He’s married, he’s got two kids and a move to the UAE would provide a nice lifestyle and a new experience for AJ and his family.

“There have been no concrete offers as such at this moment in time, but there has been strong interest from a number of clubs in the gulf area, including a couple from the UAE.

“Without a doubt, he is looking at it. It’s just a case of weighing up his options and making sure he joins the right club.”
