Now deemed surplus to requirements, the Mail claim that Pulis is willing to let the 27-year-old leave on either a permanent or loan deal and is fully aware that the club may have to suffer a loss on this investment.

Johnson was previously linked with a switch to Birmingham City, who are managed by former Middlesbrough boss Gary Monk.
