Norwich midfielder Johnson admits he could be playing for USA
Former USA coach Bob Bradley was keen to draft him into the country's international squad.
Johnson told the Mirror: "But I couldn't do it because I couldn't get a visa. I qualify through a grandparent. Bob had spoken to me a few times and I would have loved to have done it. I'm just grateful for the recognition.
"Now I want to continue working hard because the path my career has taken has helped me to appreciate football so much more."
