Midfielder Lee Johnson has today agreed to join Chesterfield from Bristol City on a 93 day emergency loan.

Bristol City have the option to recall Johnson after 28 days.

He is a former Arsenal youth player who then went onto play for Yeovil, Heart of Midlothian and Bristol City, for whom he has made 177 appearances with 11 goals.

He will be in contention for a place in the squad for tomorrow’s trip to Exeter City as will striker Craig Westcarr who has joined the Spireites on a permanent basis from Notts County.

The 26-year-old has signed a two-year deal to complete a busy week in the transfer market for John Sheridan in the wake of last weekend’s 6-2 defeat at MK Dons.
