Andy Johnson leaves Oakwell

Andy Johnson leaves Oakwell

Andy Johnson has been released from his contract by Barnsley after failing to make any sort of an impact at Oakwell.

The 34-year-old has made just five first-team appearances after arriving on a free transfer from Leicester in June 2007.

Midfielder Johnson has failed to feature for Simon Davey this term and has now been told he is free to find alternative employment.

A statement was made about the former Wales international on the official Barnsley FC website, reading: 'Barnsley FC can confirm that midfielder Andy Johnson has left Oakwell after his contract with the club was cancelled by mutual consent.'

Johnson started out as a trainee at Norwich City and was signed by Nottingham Forest in 1997 for £2.2million before being snapped up by West Brom for £200,000 in 2001.
