Former Liverpool youngster, George Johnston, who is currently on loan at Wigan Athletic is currently attracting a lot of interest from League One outfits Portsmouth and Ipswich Town who both want to snap up the young player ahead of the upcoming season. Football Insider, the source of the report, also added that Wigan would be more than willing to keep hold of the player who has won the hearts of the fan and everyone at the club since sealing his loan move there.



The 22-year-old decided that it was only a good decision for him to leave his parent club, Dutch heavyweights Feyenoord and seal a move to Wigan in a bid to get more game time and focus on taking up more games as he looks to rediscover his form.

His inability to make it to the latest Holland national team squad is another reason he decided to leave Feyenoord so he could boost his chances of making it to the next one. Johnston left Liverpool back in 2019 and joined Eredivisie’s Rotterdam with the idea of getting more game time since he was not given any opportunity at Anfield to showcase his talent.

However, he found himself in a similar situation to the one he was in at Liverpool as the central defender was only allowed to make just four appearances for the club before he decided to go out on loan and Wigan was the club he decided to join.

His Contract at Feyenoord is set to expire at the end of this season but with his future back in Holland seeming highly unlikely to continue, he could be set to take another step in his career by choosing either Wigan, Portsmouth, or Ipswich Town who are all vying for his signature.

He has put in some brilliant performances for Wigan so far this season and he may well continue to attract more suitors if he continues in the same fashion.
