At Birmingham, Johnson formed an outstanding partnership with Scott Dann as the Blues went on a 16-match unbeaten run between October 2009 and January 2010 and was linked with a call-up to the England squad before winning the League Cup with the club in 2011.

A veteran of over 100 Premier League appearances for Birmingham and Wolves, Johnson will boost Sam Allardyce's defensive options, with centre-backs Winston Reid, James Collins and James Tomkins all recovering from injuries.

Johnson could go straight into the squad for Wednesday's Capital One Cup semifinal first leg tie at Manchester City.
