Goalkeeper Johnson, 22, joins Tottenham and will take on Son Heung-min in an A-League match.
Tottenham Hotspur, the English Premier League (EPL) club with Son Heung-min as captain, has bolstered its frontline with the signing of 22-year-old Welsh striker Brennan Johnson.
“We have signed Johnson from Nottingham Forest (Second Division),” Tottenham announced on Tuesday (July 2), “with a contract until 2029, wearing the number 22 shirt.”
Terms of the deal were not announced, but Johnson’s transfer fee is reportedly in excess of £45 million.
The ‘young blood’ fills a gap in Tottenham’s frontline that was created by the departure of veteran striker Harry Kane to Bayern Munich (Germany).
Johnson is the son of David Johnson, 47, a former Jamaican national soccer team striker who played for Nottingham Forest.
Born in Nottingham, Johnson made his professional debut in 2019 at Nottingham Forest, where his father played.
After a season-long loan to Lincoln City (Third Division) in 2020-2021, Johnson returned to Nottingham for the 2021-2022 season, scoring 16 goals in 46 regular-season games to help the club earn promotion to the EPL.
After another solid season in the EPL last season, scoring eight goals in 38 appearances, Johnson was approached by Tottenham and opted to make the move.
Johnson represented England at U-16 and U-17 level before switching to Wales, where he played at U-19 and U-21 level, earning his first call-up to the Welsh national team in 2020, scoring two goals in 20 A matches.
Johnson, who will be playing alongside Son at Tottenham, will coincidentally meet Son as an “enemy” on September 8.
Johnson has been named 카지노사이트킴 as a striker in the Wales squad to face South Korea in an exhibition match at Cardiff City Stadium on that day.
