Not only is Johnson passionate and committed to the cause but he is also technically brilliant.

The 21-year-old has firmly established himself as a vitally important member of David Moyes’s first-team at West Ham. The Hammers fans love him and it seems as though he has admirers from outside the London Stadium as well…

Troy Deeney raves about West Ham ace Ben Johnson

The Birmingham City ace spoke to the Sun and shared a list of up and coming English players who he particularly rates.

Johnson was one of the men on Deeney’s list.

The striker absolutely raved about the young Hammer:

“I remember being seriously impressed with this full-back when he made one of his first Premier League appearances against Watford 18 months ago. He looked so solid, a proper defender, unlike so many other modern full-backs – and I have enjoyed watching him develop his all-round game since. He looks as though he is learning and improving all the time and at 21, he is now a first-team regular at West Ham. Johnson is two-footed and can play on either flank, he has a great attitude and is already becoming yet another high-quality English right-back. With former England defenders Ledley King as a cousin and Paul Parker as an uncle, there is some serious pedigree there too.”

The Sky’s the limit for Johnson.

As long as the 21-year-old continues to work hard and applies himself correctly, he can achieve anything he wants in the game.

We are very lucky to have Johnson at the London Stadium. He does seem to have something very special about him.
