Black - also a former Glens player - has completed an initial one-year deal with the Windsor Park club, with manager David Jeffrey extending a warm welcome to his new signing.
"It's been a strange turn of events," Jeffrey told Linfield's official website.
"I actually thought Johnny had headed off to Australia and then I'd heard he hadn't gone, but was hoping to go to Shamrock Rovers.
"When we talked about the possibility of him coming here, he jumped at the chance."
Johnny is very much one of our own - he was a Blueman as a youngster.
Jeffrey added that he was delighted to sign Black, after he showed great quality in training with the Blues - "not just defensively, but of course with that superb left foot of his".
Black found himself in the spotlight last year over the 'wonder goal' he netted for Coleraine against Portadown, planting the ball firmly in the back of the net after a free kick from inside his own half.
And that came after he set up the infamous Ballon d'Or-nominated Matty Burrows goal during his time with Glentoran.
Black told the Linfield website that he's now setting out to help the side win more trophies.
"I used to watch Linfield week in week out and I remember sitting here hoping that maybe one day I could go out there and play for Linfield," he said.
"To be honest, I just can't wait to get out there and get the blue shirt on. It's just great that I'm now a Linfield player and I'm just really happy and proud to have signed for this great club."
He added: "I had started to make other plans for my future but, when a club like Linfield - that I've supported since I was a young child - comes for you, you have to put your other plans to the side.
"This was such a great opportunity and it was one that would probably never come again, so I have to jump at the chance and grab this opportunity now."
