Johnson signs new four-year deal at Pompey

Portsmouth defender Glen Johnson has signed a new four-and-a-half year deal at Fratton Park.

The 24-year-old England right-back has impressed this season and his form on the south coast has seen him become a regular in Fabio Capello's England squad.

The deal is fillip for manager Tony Adams following the recent losses of Lassana Diarra and Jermain Defoe to Real Madrid and Tottenham respectively and the boss is delighted to see the former Chelsea star commit his future to Pompey.

"It's great news that Glen's decided to sign a new contract," said Adams. "I'm delighted to have him here - I want him here for a long time.

"This is a good place for him. He's got back in the England squad since he came here.

"Glen's applied himself really well. He's always desperate to play and gets frustrated when he can't. He's been very good for this club and this club's been very good for him."

Pompey's executive chairman Peter Storrie said: "Glen was only too happy to sign a new contract and it speaks volumes about his loyalty for this club and his desire to succeed with Pompey.

"In my opinion we have the best right-back in the country and this sends out a strong message that top-quality players want to play for this club."

Johnson began his career at West Ham, before becoming Roman Abramovich's first signing at Chelsea in 2003 and has 10 English caps to his name.
