Gateshead striker Danny Johnson has signed a two-year contract extension with the National League club.

Johnson scored 15 goals in 41 games for the Heed this season, having signed in July 2015 following his release by Championship side Cardiff City.

The 23-year-old has also previously had spells with Stevenage and Tranmere.

"If you have someone who is capable of scoring goals, then it's important that you re-sign him," manager Neil Aspin told the club website.external-link

"At the age he is, I believe he can get better, too."

Gateshead finished ninth in the National League, 13 points outside the play-off places.
