Michael Johnson has signed for Leicester City on a season-long loan deal from Manchester City, the Barclays Premier League club have confirmed.

The 23-year-old midfielder will be reunited with manager Sven-Goran Eriksson, for whom he enjoyed his best spell at City before three years of injury nightmares.

Johnson, an England under-21 international, has made 45 first-team appearances for City, but only two since he suffered an abdominal injury in 2008 as he has struggled to get back to full fitness, enduring a series of setbacks.
