Besotted women are continuing to bombard jailed footballer Adam Johnson with letters and racy photos a week after he began a six-year sentence for molesting a 15-year-old girl.

The shamed former England star is being sent mail from a number of female admirers, some of whom are allegedly asking to visit him in prison.

Photographs sent to Johnson will be intercepted by prison guards but as long as the letters don't contain dangerous material the 28-year-old will have them forwarded onto him.

Messages of support were first sent to Johnson's home and via social media during his trial but a steady stream are still continuing, according to the Daily Express.


Among the letters Johnson has received in the past were those posted to the £1.8million mansion the former Sunderland winger shared with his then girlfriend Stacey Flounders.

At the weekend it was revealed she plans to visit her ex-partner at HM Prison Leeds in Armley with their daughter.

She is said to be standing by Johnson despite his jail sentence for sexual activity with a child because she wants to maintain the relationship between father and one-year-old daughter Ayla.

During Johnson's trial, the court heard that the pair - who first got together when the footballer moved from Manchester City to Sunderland in 2012 - had ended their relationship.

It was also revealed that the disgraced footballer exchanged explicit photos with a number of women, some of whom he was having affairs with.
