JOHNSON SIGNS FOR POTTERS

Stoke City have completed the signing of Jamaica international Daniel Johnson on a two-year contract.


The 30-year-old brings a wealth of Championship experience to the Potters’ squad, having racked up over 250 appearances in the second tier during his time at Preston North End.


Johnson’s move to the Potteries sees him link up with his former manager Alex Neil, for whom he enjoyed his most productive goalscoring season to date, netting 12 times from midfield during the 2019/20 campaign.


Capped 18 times by Jamaica at international level, Johnson joins up with his new teammates after helping his country reach the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup in America last week.


“Adding Championship know-how and experience to the first team is clearly important as we structure the squad ahead of the new season,” said Technical Director Ricky Martin.


“Daniel is well respected for the quality of his performances over a sustained period at Preston North End and thrived in Alex’s tactical approach, playing some of the best football of his career to date in the four years they worked together.


“We know all about the strength of his character, and that he possesses the physical and technical attributes required to contribute to a successful Stoke City.”


Johnson, who was voted Preston North End’s Player of the Year in 2020, added that he is energised by a new opportunity and the chance to work with Neil again.


“The gaffer has had a positive influence on my career and I know what he expects from his teams,” he said. “I think, equally, he knows what I can deliver for him.


“It is a new challenge for me; one that has come at a good time in my career where I really believe I can showcase my best football in a Stoke City shirt.”
