Signed from League One Wolves to cover a chronic central defensive shortage, Johnson arrived at the Boleyn Ground just five days into the 2014 January transfer window.
Prior to becoming a Hammer, Johnson had spent the first half of the 2013/14 season on loan with Championship side Sheffield Wednesday who were hoping to sign the defender on a permanent basis.
However the move was gazumped by the Hammers, who signed Johnson on a free transfer.
After starting his career at Wycombe, Johnson moved to Cardiff in July 2006 in a ?275,000 switch. Three years later, Birmingham City - owned at the time by Messrs Sullivan and Gold - paid ?5million to take him to to St Andrew's before they sold him to neighbours Wolves for ?7million in the summer of 2011.
He joined Wednesday on loan in September 2013, since when he featured on 17 occasions.
