Johnson pens new Owls deal

Wednesday wing wizard Jermaine Johnson has signed a new one-year contract to stay at Hillsborough.

The Jamaican was one of three out-of-contract players to be offered new deals at S6 - James O'Connor and Lewis Buxton have already accepted new deals - and will now stay an Owl until at least the summer of 2012.

The 31-year-old was still a key player under Gary Megson, the Owls boss, last season and made 29 appearances in total, scoring five goals along the way.

He arrived in the Steel City from Bradford City in January 2007, signed by former boss Brian Laws, and has been a firm favourite with the Owls fans.

Vital understands other clubs had shown an interest in signing the jet-heeled winger for next season, with Chesterfield one of the names linked, but JJ has opted to pull on the famous blue and white stripes again next term.

If we are to aim for promotion this year then I can only see JJ being an impact player from the bench. We need fitter and harder working players from kick-off so still think we're searching for our first choice right and left midfielders in the market. It's decent news as our squad is looking a little depleted but I wouldn't have been sad had he not signed.

Agreed MB this doesn't change alot for me either still think we need 2 decent wngers with a consistant end product but at least when the opposition are getting tired we have something to make them think in genuine pace coming from the bench

i like jj and agree with he may only be a impact player but only guy we got who can beat a man still it gives the opposition something to think bout

odds on 20mins buzzing in 1st match then a pulled hamstring and out for rest of season due to more hamstring trouble

That could be a blessing in disguise Mick...

Probably the only player that can cause a threat, if JJ was consistent and had an end product he would be in the premiership. And GM is attempting to turn us into the fittest team in the league, so we could see a different JJ maybe?
samh
but he isn't and he's not and he isn't good enough to play for us either. i can only hope i'm wrong but i'd be amazed if he did anything different this coming season

He's not a kid that's learning his trade, he's a 30 year old leopard that won't change his spots. We can expect more of the same from him I'm afraid!
TheDon1974
on a side note, it would be nice to see JJ play football with a smile on his face. don't think I've ever seen the lad smile. it could be worse JJ...
