LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday he was hopeful a trade deal with the European Union could still be agreed, but that Brussels needed to understand Britain’s priorities.

“There’s a deal there to be done and we’re keen to do it, but it depends on our friends and partners understanding ... where we need to get to,” he told broadcasters.
