Defender Darnell Johnson has been with the Cods since the summer of 2021, after signing a two-year deal with the Club, having previously been at Premier League side Leicester City.

Johnson, before signing for Fleetwood, had managed to gain some experience at Sky Bet League One level having spent time on loan from the Foxes at both Wigan Athletic and AFC Wimbledon - featuring in 21 games during those two spells.

The defender has also been part of the England national team youth setup from Under-16s to Under-20s, captaining the Under-16s side, winning the UEFA Championships at the 19s level, and netted twice for the Under-20s.

Since joining the ranks at Fleetwood, he featured in the starting XI straight away and earned his spot in the League One team of the week 21 days after signing as he netted his first goal in a dominant performance against Cheltenham Town at Highbury.
