Stoke City Set To Sign Free Agent Glen Johnson

Stoke City have agreed a deal to sign English defender Glen Johnson.

The former Liverpool defender, 30, has signed a two-year deal with the option for a further year.

Johnson was released by the Reds at the end of last season. He made 174 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions since arriving from Portsmouth six years ago.

Manager Mark Hughes said: “He will be a fantastic addition. He’s a talented defender who also chips in with goals.”

The deal is subject to a medical, but he has joined up with Stoke in Singapore ahead of the Barclays Asia Trophy.

The right-back began his career at West Ham before joining Chelsea in July 2003. After a season-long loan with Portsmouth, Johnson moved to Fratton Park on a permanent transfer in 2007 and won the FA Cup with the side in his first season.

He has been capped 54 times at full international level.
