Johnson's stint in Wolves is over
Jemal Johnson has seen his Wolverhampton nightmare ended as Milton Keynes Dons have signed the 22-year old American to a two-year deal with just hours left in the transfer window.
"We can confirm that we have brought in [Johnson]," a spokesperson from Anthony Herlihy's press office told YA late Friday. "The transfer sum will remain undisclosed."
"[Head coach Paul Ince] may include him in tomorrow's match against Rochdale, but that will be decided by the manager."
Johnson, who came through the ranks of Manchester United and Blackburn Rovers' academies, made his professional debut with Blackburn in January 2005.
The following season, performances during loan stints at Preston North End and Darlington earned him a permanent move to Wolverhampton in August 2006.
After scoring three goals in his first 14 games, Johnson was involved in a training fracas, and having fell out of favor with Mick McCarthy, was sent on loan to Leeds United until the end of the season.
