Former Yeovil Town loan striker Oli Johnson is on the move again, six months after his last transfer. The 24 year old had spent the second half of the 2011-12 season playing for League Two side Oxford United, following his release from Norwich City, but was released after making just eight starts in seventeen appearances for the Yellows.
Johnson has now signed for League Two newcomers York City, who had successful visits to Wembley Stadium on two consecutive weekends as Conference Play-Off Winners and FA Trophy holders for the 2011-12 season. That move should suit the former Nostell Miners Welfare player, given that it puts him within commutable distance of his Wakefield roots.

Meanwhile back in the Conference, another former loan striker Scott Rendell has signed for Luton Town, having left Wycombe Wanderers despite having a year of his contract at Adams Park still to run. The 25 year old is reunited with manager Paul Buckle, who had previously worked with the player at Torquay United as part of a 2009-10 season loan spell.
Like Johnson, Rendell finished last season playing for Oxford United, as part of a loan spell at the Kassam Stadium. Having had a rather nomadic career so far, Luton become his 13th different club - he has signed a two year contract with the Hatters.
