Shamed footballer Adam Johnson reportedly wants a prison transfer after a gang is allegedly plotting to kill him.
The convicted paedophile was allegedly tipped off by an inmate that he is the target of a plan to cut his throat with a makeshift knife.
According to the Sun , Johnson wants to move from Moorland Prison because of the alleged threats.
A source told the newspaper:
"He is in bits. The other lag was doing him a favour by tipping him off but it has left Johnson beside himself with worry.
"He doesn’t know when or how the attack will come but he was told there was a plot to slice his throat.
“He is desperate for a move from Moorland and has been talking about putting in a transfer request.”Johnson was jailed last year for sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.Earlier this year the ex-Sunderland star was secretly filmed behind bars bragging about the incident which led him to be jailed.
In the footage - when a fellow inmate points out he did not rape her - the former England star is seen to laugh: “No, I wish I f***ing did for six year.”
