Does this suggest we've moved on from Lansbury? 

I wouldn't have thought so, I would say this maybe means that Thorne is out for longer and we need more men in the defensive midfield role, suspect Lansbury would be seen as more of a Bryson replacement

I don't think Boro would loan us a youngster if he was only to be used as cover. Suggests to me that Thorne has had a setback and we need to move Johnson forward to cover suspensions 

De Sart isn't getting game time so make senses to come here and no date for Thorne return suggested that we won't rush him back. Johnson on 7th yellow card.

Jesus, he looks Tiny. 

There's some big old units in the championship, hopefully he doesn't get bullied 

He is 6'3" just skinny. I wanted us to sign him 18 months ago. Nice passer but not exactly a destroyer.

My theory is this loan is tactical. Think Steve wants to play Johnson further forward and use his goalscoring potential. Johnson himself said he's desperate to get in the box but Keogh and Pearce always reign him in to protect against counters.

Or it's to move Johnson further forward.

Clement's best football was a midfield 3 of Thorne, Butterfield and Johnson..

He's 6'2 and had probably some of the best passing range in the league back with leige, seems to be more of the build of Hughes

Classic Derby. Get linked with a bunch of players that we need and would improve us...

...sign an underweight CDM who can't get a look in at Boro.

Classic McClaren - brings in loan player, baffles dimwit half-fan.
