'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Johnson targets new Owls contract

Wednesday winger Jermaine Johnson says he wants to stay at Wednesday beyond the end of this season and pen a new deal at Hillsborough.

The jet-heeled Jamaican signed a one-year deal last summer and he's playing to impress Owls boss Gary Megson and earn a new contract to remain at Wednesday next term.

'I don't see myself playing in front of 5,000,' JJ told the Sheffield Star.

'I see myself at Sheffield Wednesday for a long time, if the gaffer wants to give me a new contract.

'I'm enjoying my football big time. I just need to stay fit, keep working and hopefully I'll stay at Wednesday.'

Johnson, a former Bradford City and Bolton Wanderers player, has been enjoying a purple patch of form in recent matches after finding himself mostly warming the bench this term.

His superb strike in the Owls' 2-1 victory at Yeovil Town on Saturday has highlighted that form - but Wednesday fans are well aware of the inconsistencies that thwart his game.

The 31-year-old has gone a long way to showing he still has plenty to offer the Owls with his performances of late, however, and he'll be keen for that to continue between now and the end of the season as he looks to help the Owls to promotion from npower League One.

If he can keep produceing the goods then for me i'd give him another year but we all know jj he's inconsistent all to much i think it all depends on himself but have to say his goals recently have been nothing less then magical

It's funny how a players performance level increases towards the end of their contract!!

I presume the Current Site Poll is going to run through till May and fluctuate with each result/ performance/ goal! Personally, I hope JJ gets offered a new deal at the end of the season because that'll mean he's done well enough consistently enough to deserve one, and The Owls have achieved promotion (and saved a few bob) in the process.

I agree OurMaurice on your first point but he is I believe unfortunately one of those players who will never be able to produce consistantly He has proved in the past a liability with his temprament I do hope he has a stormer over the next 20 games or so and cash in on him we sold recently one year too late on players like Tudgay. it was dissapointing when we lost Brunt but finacially it was the right time even though it only ended up buying us 12 months grace from HMCR but a win tonight boys and acouple of set pieces at Goodison we are in dreamland
