Club career[edit]

Middlesbrough[edit]

Born in the Borough of Stockton-on-Tees, Johnson first represented Middlesbrough's Academy at under-9 level.[4] He originally played as a defensive-midfielder but soon converted to the role of right-back and by July 2017, was invited by first team manager Garry Monk to train with the senior side.[5] He was also a part of the Middlesbrough squad which competed in the 2015–16 UEFA Youth League.[6][7]

Accrington Stanley[edit]

On 31 August 2017, Johnson joined Accrington Stanley on a short-term loan, lasting until the end of January.[8] He then made his debut for the club on 9 September 2017 in the EFL Trophy against Middlesbrough's U21 side, playing in a central-midfield role and receiving a yellow card in the 81st minute.[9] He then went on the play the full 90 minutes in their next EFL Trophy tie, again playing in central-midfield, on 2 October 2017 against Blackpool at the Crown Ground.[10][11]

On 5 January 2018, Johnson signed permanently with the club on a two and a half year contract for an undisclosed amount.[12]

Style of play[edit]

Johnson is known to be a fairly versatile player, having played at right-back, centre-back, and defensive-midfield during his career.[8][6]
