John Johnson

Athletico de Kolkata

Experienced defender John is a graduate of the renowned Middlesbrough Academy. 

The Teessider was given a baptism of fire when Gareth Southgate handed him his debut as a substitute in a Premier League defeat to Chelsea at the Riverside.

He enjoyed loan spells with Tranmere Rovers and Northampton Town and his impressive form for the Cobblers persuaded them to sign him on a permanent basis. 

John scored seven goals in his first full season at Sixfields and was appointed captain and helped Northampton reach the League Two play-off final during his time with the club.

In 2013 he signed for Indian side Bengaluru FC in 2013, creating a piece of history as the club’s first ever foreign player.

John has enjoyed an impressive time in India and won the league’s Best Defender Award in 2014. In 2016 his performances helped the club to their second league title in just three seasons.
