JJ expected to pen Owls deal

JJ expected to pen Owls deal

Jet-heeled winger Jermaine Johnson is expected to agree a new contract with Wednesday this summer, according to reports.

The Jamaican wing wizard was offered a new deal to stay at Hillsborough by boss Gary Megson, along with James O'Connor and Lewis Buxton, and skysports.com expects him to agree to new terms.

Johnson's contract expires this summer and he could leave the Owls on a free transfer is he saw his future away from the npower League One side.

The former Bolton Wanderers and Bradford City player has been a key figure in Wednesday's squad since his arrival in 2007 and Megson sees him as vital to the Owls' bid for promotion next term.

Other clubs are understood to have shown an interest in the Jamcaican international, but if reports are to be believed he'll be pulling on the blue and white stripes next season.

Glad to hear he is on the brink of spurning the interest that other clubs have shown in him to stay and play for us... Read this on the Star website a couple of hours back. Sounds Like Megson is narrowing the pitch a bit as well as re-building the squad. Should mean that JJ has less space to run into but inturn may mean he has more gas in the tank at home??! UTO

i'm surprised megson offered him a contract as I wouldn't have thought he was megson's type of player. anyway lets hope he can repay some of the faith that has been shown in him next season because based on his contribution to the cause in the last few years he should have been out of the door

I think the same Hirsty's Shinpads would'nt have got a contract for me, lets hope Gary can give him the kick up the ass that he most certainly needs.

I'm glad to hear he's about to put pen to paper as I like his style when he gets a fire under his, but I think it will be a foolish move if Megson expects him to be our primary hit man. We're going to need a couple of reliable scorers who can play 90min in our starting lineup. Anything less will lead to more of the same, I'm afriad... and the fans and MM deserve a heck of lot more than the mediocrity and inconsistency that we've been seeing lately.

I think he's worth a punt. At the end of the day, he's good to even have as a sub. He's hardly going to be on mega bucks, so why not? It's not like we're having to mess about with petty cash - we have Milan mandaric for gods sake1

JJ must be worth another contract,whether its a year or two.Showed what he is capable of in last game with a cracking goal.We have no other player who could score a goal like that.When he runs at defenders with his pace he is a real threat and i love to watch him do it.However,he is so inconsistant and frustrating.Hope Megson can sort him out and improve his stamina so that he can play for more than an hour,both at home and away.

so how can any of the the above deem him worthy of another contract? can only play an hour, does nothing away from home and only appears in patches at home when things are going well. too old to change and i'm still not happy about his hospitalization earlier this year

JJ can win matches that is why you endure him when he is not so hot. Not like Potter, for instance, who flatters to deceive all the time. JJ's form has been hit by illness and Irvine trying to make him a striker. Get him on the wing with a pre-season behind him. JJ is going to rip them up. Maybe not, I always thought Esajas was our best player.
