Liverpool star Glen Johnson signs for Stoke
Stoke have announced the signing of former Liverpool defender Glen Johnson on an initial two-year contract.
The 30-year-old has flown to Singapore to join his new team-mates on their pre-season tour, pending what the club call “finalising the formalities” of the deal.
Johnson, whose contract includes the option of an extension into a third year, will become the Potters’ sixth signing of the summer.
Stoke boss Mark Hughes said: “Glen will be a fantastic addition to our squad.He’s a talented defender who also chips in with goals - as we discovered last season when he scored the winner against us at Anfield - and having spoken to him I know how much he’s looking forward to being a Stoke player.”
Johnson, who has been capped 54 times by England, moved to Liverpool in an £18m deal in 2009 and made 200 league and cup appearances for the club.
