Roger Johnson joins Indian Super League side FC Pune City

Former Wolverhampton Wanderers man Roger Johnson joins the Indian Super League with David Platt's FC Pune City.

Former Birmingham City and Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Roger Johnson has become the latest English player to sign for Indian Super League side FC Pune City.

The 32-year-old joins the Maharashtra outfit on a free transfer after being released by Charlton Athletic earlier this year.

Pune, who are managed by former England international David Platt, previously recruited Nicky Shorey, former Everton and Rangers goalkeeper Steven Simonsen, and ex-Barnsley midfielder James Bailey.

One-time Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Didier Zokora, ex-Middlesbrough striker Tuncay Sanli, and former Chelsea star Adrian Mutu also play for Platt's side.

Johnson made more than 500 appearances in English football since beginning his career at Wycombe Wanderers in 2000.
