Belfast-born Johnston joined the Fleetwood academy in 2018 from Linfield in Northern Ireland, signing his first professional contract in January last year.

He has represented his country at Under-17s, Under-19s, and Under-21 levels and hopes to follow Highbury teammate Paddy Lane into the senior side.

Johnston told the club website: “I’m glad to get this deal over the line. I’ve enjoyed my time at Fleetwood Town so far, since coming in as a young lad in the Under-18s, and now I just want to look forwards and get going once we are back in for pre-season.”
