Ex-Sunderland winger Adam Johnson has been banned from talking to his own daughter after prison guards listened in on a phone call, according to The Sun.
The call was between Johnson and his girlfriend Stacey Flounders, but Flounders passed the phone to the couple's 17-month-old baby girl Ayla.
A shocked Johnson was informed that he had lost numerous privileges, including TV channels and prisoners 'association time' because he had breached a sex offender rule, which stated that he was not to contact children.
A source told The Sun: “Johnson did not realise he would be listened to, and that he was doing something wrong. But they have come down hard on him. He’s devastated.
“With the ban on seeing Ayla and the pictures from Dubai, Johnson is extremely low.”
Johnson is currently serving a six-year sentence following a conviction for sexual activity with a 15-year-old girl.
