Last updated : 07 January 2006 By Brian Cartlidge

The Blues co-owner confirmed that Blues had offerred Palace £3million plus two unnamed players for the England striker but this was rejected by the London club.

"We have been told that Andrew Johnson is not for sale.

"Their view is that they are going for promotion and wouldn't look at selling him until the summer at least, assuming they didn't make it."

AJ signed a new five-year contract at Selhurst Park in August despite Palace's relegation from the Premiership.
