King's Lynn have signed ex-Norwich midfielder Andy Johnson.

Club officials completed a deal on Friday lunchtime for the former Welsh international who will make his debut in tomorrow's Blue Square North test against Blyth Spartans at The Walks.

Johnson was released by Championship strugglers Barnsley earlier this month. The 34-year-old held talks with Blue Square Premier outfits Kidderminster and Rushden & Diamonds before opting to link up again with Linnets' chief Keith Webb.

The former Norwich trainee worked under Webb at Carrow Road after joining the club as a schoolboy. Johnson made 73 appearances in a seven year spell before a �2.2m move to Notts Forest in June 1997. The Bristol-born midfielder played for WBA and Leicester prior to his Oakwell stint.

Lynn also released midfielder Ben Sedgemore earlier today.
