Johnson said: “When it all came about it was a no-brainer for me. I have chopped and changed but I do feel at home at Salford.
“There’s some good people at the club.”
The 26-year-old is looking forward to gelling with some of the new lads that have joined ranks with the Red Devils ahead of this season with the likes of Elijah Taylor and Darcy Lussick bringing in substantial NRL experience.
“It’ll be good to take the field with them and it’s good to be around them day-to-day at training.
“The better quality we keep bringing in, like the club’s doing, it’s only going to improve us lads who are trying to get to that kind of level they’ve got to,” Johnson added.
A product of Salford’s academy, Johnson wants to help the next wave of young talent come through at the AJ Bell.
“As you get older you want to try and help the young lads come through.
“If you only get one coming through it’s a success,” Johnson said.
