Football video games "PES 2016" and "Football Manager 2016" have removed disgraced ex-Sunderland forward Adam Johnson from their games, Gameranx reports.

Adam Johnson, 28, was found guilty of indulging in sexual activity with a 15-year old girl, and might face jail time, following the judgement from Bradford Crown Court jury.

Konami, the company behind the game "PES 2016," confirmed to Digital Spy that Johnson will be removed from the game when its March update rolls out. Starting next week, players will not find him in any of the online modes of "PES 2016."

Sega, that is behind the game "Football Manager 2016," has already deleted him from the game.

The report noted Johnson will still be available in EA's "FIFA 16," since they cannot remove him due to "technical issues."

Though EA tried to remove him from the game in February update, technical issues stopped it. "We released a team update last month to remove Adam Johnson; however due to technical issues it is not possible to delete him from everyone's version," The Sun reported, citing an EA spokesperson.

Johnson was sacked from the English Premiere team, Sunderland following his pleading guilty of two criminal charges, report added.
