Johnson is a winger, which I guess might not quite fit the bill. Plus, he has played in the Premier League, but for Motherwell, not in England. However, he is a free agent and there are strong Michael Appelton links. Michael signed him for Oxford from Motherwell and later the U’s sold him to Middlesbrough for what is thought to be a profit of around £2m. Since then, he’s played 117 times in the Championship, including an 11-game spell at Sheffield United, helping them to promotion to the top flight.
