The Wales international has built on a breakout campaign on loan with League One side Lincoln City last season, where he scored 12 times and notched six assists in all competitions for the Imps.

“For me it’s important he continues that development and plays regular football.

“The second goal is another example of the composure running through his body at the minute – an excellently taken goal.

“They will do everything they absolutely can do to keep hold of him. He’s a player with a big future and will end up in the Premier League at some point.”

The verdict 

Johnson has been one of the brightest sparks in the entire division so far this season, with the sky really being the limit at this point in his career.
