Johnson closing on Stoke move

Johnson, 30, was released by Liverpool at the end of last season despite claiming more of a regular role in Brendan Rodgers’ side over the last two months.

The England full-back made 160 Premier League appearances for the Reds after joining them from Portsmouth in the summer of 2009.

Since his departure from Anfield in June, Liverpool have snapped up another England international – Nathaniel Clyne – to play at right-back.

The 30-year-old, who has 54 caps, was also linked with moves to West Ham and Turkish side Besiktas.
