City on Johansen*:
Standing at 6ft 4in, Eirik Holmen Johanson is a promising young goalkeeper who signed a new deal with Cityon the first-team’s pre-season tour of Austria in 2012.
An excellent shot-stopper with great handling ability, the Norwegian youngster can only benefit and gain valuable experience by training alongside England’s established No.1, Joe Hart and Romanian international Costel Pantilimon.
Although he wasn't able to help Scunthorpe United beat the League One drop, Johansen impressed for The Iron in his loan spell there at the end of the 2012/13 season, earning the praise of the local press and his manager.
Johansen has represented Norway at various youth levels up to the u23 selection and recently trained with the senior squad.
Eirik has joined Sandefjord on loan until 30 June 2014.
