Wednesday completed the signing of Reda Johnson from Plymouth Argyle this week, and we get the lowdown on our new arrival from Vital Plymouth's Ian De-Lar.
'Reda Johnson was an unknown quantity,' he said.
"He was born in France but has played for Benin, the birth country of his father.
"Before moving to Plymouth he played just 15 games in his professional career, playing for Amiens in France.
"In the summer of 2009 he went on trial at Aberdeen but Plymouth Argyle manager Paul Sturrock nipped him and signed him as a free agent.
'In his first few games he was understandably very inexperienced, due to not having played many games at professional level, but as the season wore on Johnson got better and better, despite Argyle getting relegated.
"This season Johnson started badly but in recent weeks he has returned to form.
'On his day Johnson is a very good centre-back - tall, powerful and pacy. He`s able to stick out a long leg to make a last ditch tackle or jump above any striker to head the ball away.
'On an off day and there have been a few - Johnson looks clumsy and has been described as "Bambi on ice". He can give away needless free-kicks near the penalty area and is often caught out of position.
Johnson is a Work In Progress and with a few more years experience he could play at the highest level. I wish he had stayed but the financial situation at Argyle requires us to sell our better players. It`s either sell players or lose the club, no brainer.
"Good luck Reda!'
Thanks to Ian for giving us a heads-up on our new signing.
