Canaries set to land Johnson

Johnson is out of contract at Elland Road and will join with the

newly-promoted club on a free transfer this week. The 24-year-old

made 45 Championship appearances for the Whites last season as

their play-off push fell just short. Johnson is expected a sign a

three-year contract for Paul Lambert’s side. The former Northampton

and Brighton man will be another cog in the Norwich evolution

following the capture of James Vaughan and with Millwall’s Steve

Morison due to join. Johnson was linked with a number of other

Premier League clubs but it would appear they have either failed to

firm up their reported interest, or been unable to offer him the

assurances over playing time that Norwich can.
