The 22-year-old joins from Dutch giants Feyenoord but he will be known to fans in England having come through the ranks at Liverpool, whilst he spent last season on loan with Wigan Athletic.
Johnston impressed for the Latics and he will be back in the third tier next season, with the Trotters announcing his arrival on their official site this evening.
Boss Ian Evatt is reshaping the squad following promotion and whilst plenty of new recruits are expected in the coming weeks, this is a move that has gone under the radar.
Can you name the Bolton Wanderers player who has been carded most in each of the last 16 seasons?
Therefore, the reaction to the transfer news was one of surprise initially but also positivity as they recognise the talent and potential that Johnston has.
Here we look at some of the reaction to the transfer news from Twitter…
