& # 39; I want to thank the Lansdown family, the board of directors, Mark Ashton, players and staff, as well as the fans for supporting me so far and we are moving on. & # 39;
Johnson led City to eighth place in the championship in 2018-19 and missed out on a play-off spot with four points.
In 2017-18 Johnson took the club to the semi-final of the League Cup and next season he is working to get closer to the promotion of the Premier League.
He also played 199 games for City between 2006 and 2012 before entering management in Oldham and then banning Barnsley.
Chief Executive Officer Mark Ashton said: & I am delighted that Lee has dedicated his future to the club.
& # 39; He follows the same vision, which is essential, and we will continue to work together to achieve our ultimate goal of promotion to the Premier League. & # 39;
