THIS is how paedophile Adam Johnson groomed his 15-year-old victim through WhatsApp.
The shamed former Sunderland footballer could be jailed for up to 10 years after being found guilty of one count of sexual activity with a child.
He had already admitted grooming and another sexual activity charge on the first day of his trial at Bradford Crown Court.
It emerged the vile predator swapped 834 messages with his vulnerable victim in just two months.
He first asked about her age, when she confirmed she was underage.
Johnson then asked: "Where do you go out?"
His victim replied: "I'm not old enough to go out."
After swapping more messages, Johnson then met the girl on January 17 to give her a signed shirt and continued grooming her.
He said: "You owe me. I thought I would have got a thank you kiss for the shirt. I will get this thank you, it had better be worth it."
Johnson then asked if he was only getting a kiss, to which the girl replied: "Depends on what else your after."
The pair arranged to meet for a second time in Johnson's black Range Rover on January 30.
Within hours, Johnson text: " Wasn't bad was it? Lol.
She replied: "No haha."
Johnson responded: "Haha think we need to go in the back next time lol.
"It was class just wanted to get your jeans off."
She responded: "Next time. Haha."
Johnson said: "I will last 10 seconds though lol"
Johnson asked her to delete the messages.
