Argyle Defender Set For Owls Move

Argyle Defender Set For Owls Move

Plymouth Argyle have confirmed that central defender Reda Johnson is set to open talks with Wednesday over a move to Hillsborough this month.

The Pilgrims have confirmed via their official website that the 22-year-old defender is set to open discussions with Wednesday imminently.

The statement, on Argyle's official site, reads: 'Defender RĂ©da Johnson is set to become the second Pilgrim to leave Home Park since the January transfer-window opened, with Sheffield Wednesday his probable destination.

'The 22-year-old centre-back is scheduled to have talks with the Pilgrims' npower League 1 rivals.'

The Home Park club are being forced to sell their top players to ease their current financial difficulties.

And Owls boss Alan Irvine looks to have taken advantage by snapping up the France-born Benin international, who was signed by former Owls boss Paul Sturrock during his time in Devon.

Irvine is keen to bolster his squad this month, especially in defence following some below-par performances of late.

ashamed to say it as i feel my footy knowledge is pretty good, but i don't know a lot about this guy. what's his key qualities? we need some pace at the back IMO. i know centre backs need to be strong but we need someone quick enough to cope with some of the faster centre forwards in the league.

it said he's 6"2 and got great reviews last year despite relegation last season on his wiki page,22 years old, so a good age. other than that, never heard of him.
