Adam Johnson has lodged an appealed against his six-year prison sentence.
The former England international and Sunderland winger was sentenced last month by the jury at Bradford Crown Court for one charge of sexual activity with a minor.
Johnson, who had already pleaded guilty to a lesser charge and one of grooming, has already begun an appeal against that conviction.
An official at Bradford Crown Court confirmed to Omnisport that the 28-year-old has now applied for a review of his six-year prison sentence.
On the Adam Johnson’s Appeal Fight Facebook page, set up by his sister Faye, a post said: “Adam’s appeal against his sentence has now been lodged! Thanks everyone for your support it means a lot!”
Johnson had his contract terminated by Sunderland after his guilty plea.
