Discussions between Johnson and Liverpool have come to a sticking point where the defender seeks a longer term deal than what the club is willing to offer, reports the Daily Mail.

Johnson has been offered an additional year on top of his remaining 12 months at the club, but the player is holding out for a longer offer. The defender suffered an own goal this past season, but helped deliver nine clean sheets and eight blocks without having a regular starting position in the side.

Johnson picked up an assist in Saturday's 6-3 win at Cardiff City.

The assist was Johnson's second this season, with the first coming back on December 7 against West Ham. Johnson dealt with an ankle injury in January and February, but appears fully fit with a very promising fantasy matchup Wednesday against Sunderland at Anfield.

Johnson returned from an ankle injury and played the full 90 minutes in Liverpool's 4-3 victory over Swansea on Sunday.

Johnson took over for Aly Cissokho at right back and was fit enough to last the entire match. Johnson has had a disappointing season thus far, so it will be interesting to see if he can get back on track now that he is healthy.

Johnson (ankle) should be ready to return to training sometime next week according to manager Brendan Rodgers.

Johnson is making a slightly quicker than expected recovery, which is good news for a depleted Liverpool defensive unit. Johnson hasn't been playing up to his typical quality all season, so hopefully the time off will allow him to regain his form upon returning.

Johnson will be sidelined indefinitely with an ankle injury, and has been playing through a few other injuries all season, according to manager Brendan Rodgers, reports.

Johnson's performance this season has been sub-par with some even questioning his spot in the England starting XI. His absence will create even more shuffling of the Liverpool back line that hasn't had any consistency all season.
