Johnson’s move to Dundalk will allow him to gain some regular game experience in the League of Ireland, which will improve his development.

He has spent his whole career with Sunderland, rising through the academy ranks. The England young international, who has represented the Three Lions at Under-18 level three times, has been a fixture for the Championship side at various youth levels in previous seasons.
Johnson made his Black Cats debut in October 2021 against Manchester United Under-21s in the EFL Trophy.

He has since played once more for the North East club, where he is under contract until the summer of 2026.

The Sunderland native appeared 12 times for Hartlepool earlier this season in the National League before returning in January.
Johnson has been transferred overseas again to further his growth, and he will return later this year.

Sunderland return to play this evening, travelling away to Huddersfield Town. They triumphed 3-1 at home against Plymouth Argyle last time out and will be looking for another win to enhance their promotion ambitions.
