Biography


Born in Middlesbrough, Danny Johnson began his career with the youth academies of his hometown club and Hartlepool United.

After brief spells with Real Murcia and Harrogate Town, the striker signed for Billingham Synthonia, scoring 9 goals in 21 appearances.

A highly productive spell with Guisborough Town followed, in which Danny scored 65 goals in 64 appearances before signing for Cardiff City in 2014.

Danny ever played a competitive game for the Welsh club, taking in loan spells with Tranmere Rovers and Stevenage in League Two before signing permanently for Gateshead in 2015.

Danny was a regular for the National League Club over the next 3 seasons, scoring 53 goals in 127 appearances before signing for Motherwell in June 2018.

A bright start to life in Lanarkshire saw Danny score goals against Rangers, Aberdeen and Celtic early in the season, as he went on to score 8 goals in 28 games in total.

Danny penned a two year deal with Dundee in the summer of 2019, and scored on his debut for the club during a 1-0 win over Inverness CT in the Betfred Cup group stage.

The striker followed this up with a brace in the 2-2 draw with Dunfermline Athletic in the first game of the league season. Danny departed the club in the January transfer window to sign for Leyton Orient, as the club’s top scorer, with 7 goals in 22 games.
