West Ham United are interested in signing Glen Johnson from Stoke City, according to Sky Sports.

The defender joined the Potters on a free transfer from Liverpool in 2015 and became a regular under Mark Hughes, but an injury last February kept him out for the rest of the season.

The 32-year-old has now played 42 times in all competitions under the manager.

Johnson started his career with the Hammers and made his Premier League debut for them as a substitute in January 2003 against Charlton Athletic.

His most notable achievement is being part of a Chelsea squad that won a domestic double during the 2004/05 season.

The Hammers signed previous Champions League winner Álvaro Arbeloa from Real Madrid for one season, but he has not managed to hold down a first-team place, with two of his four appearances in all competitions coming from the bench.

Johnson would be a good fit for West Ham as he has lots of experience in the Premier League to help strengthen the defence.
