Owls complete deal for Wolves defender
Roger Johnson to join Sheffield Wednesday on loan
Sheffield Wednesday have complete a move that will see Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Roger Johnson join the club on a 93-day loan deal.
Johnson has been exiled by new Wolves boss Kenny Jackett, due to attitude problems and poor professionalism. He had been training with the reserves and academy players since Jackett's introduction, after incidents with the Molineux faithful.
Wolves signed Johnson from fellow Midlands club Birmingham City in July 2011 for a reported £4million fee.
The English defender had been linked with moves to Arsenal and Liverpool following a successful season under the stewardship of Alex McLeish.
Johnson was handed the captaincy at Wolves by Mick McCarthy during the club's spell in the Premier League, but poor performances last season contributed to Wolves' relegation to League One.
The defender even initiated a confrontation with Wolves supporters after the club's relegation at Brighton last season.
Upon Jackett's arrival, Johnson was officially confirmed as having been transfer listed, and was removed from all first-team duties ahead of the new campaign.
Owls boss Dave Jones will hope to reinvigorate the form that Johnson became renowned for at Cardiff City and Birmingham City.
