The attacker rose up through Forest’s academy ranks before breaking into the first-team and making his senior debut in the Championship four years ago.

He showcased his talents to travelling Everton supporters by scoring twice against the Toffees in a 2-2 draw at the City Ground in March.

His goals across all competitions saw Johnson finish the season as Forest’s second-highest top scorer behind Taiwo Awoniyi.
