Biography


Johnny came through the youth development programme at Tannadice, representing the Club at all levels for four years, before signing his first professional deal in 2007. His first team debut followed immediately after, but required spells on loan at Forfar Athletic and Raith Rovers before breaking into United’s first team in 2010-11 some three seasons later.

Under Peter Houston, Johnny returned nine goals in first full season as a first team player, and fourteen the season after, proving to be the perfect replacement for the departing David Goodwillie. Johnny's eye for goal and finishing made him a regular in the side, up front and on the wing and by January 2013, he had recorded three hat-tricks for the Club - one of only two players to achieve that feat in the 21st century. Scoring twenty goals in the 2012-13 season, he finished as the Club's top scorer and became United's most prolific striker since Davie Dodds, with a goals-to-game ratio of 53%.

His form had attracted the attention of clubs in England and in the pre-season of 2013-14, he moved to Derby County for a reported fee of £700,000.
