Before West Ham United

Born in Surrey, Johnson started his career with Wycombe Wanderers where he came up through the ranks before becoming the Chairboys' youngest ever player when he made his debut as a 17-year-old against Cambridge United in May 1999. After eight years and 157 league games at Adams Park he left to join Cardiff City in July 2006 and spent three years with the Bluebirds before he moved to Birmingham City in July 2009. After a strong first season, in which Johnson helped the Blues to a ninth place Premier League finish, he helped the club to win the Carling Cup in 2011 before they suffered relegation in the same season. Johnson moved across Birmingham to Wolves after the Blues were relegated and has found life tough at Molineux as the club slipped into Sky Bet League One.
