Johnson has been with rivals Sheffield United on loan. The former ‘Well winger said of his move to Sheffield Wednesday: “I took a lot of time to consider my options. I had quite a few options in the Championship but thinking of it as a whole and meeting the gaffer, the ambition was there.

“He didn’t say anything that any manager wouldn’t say to get a player he wants but he has been brilliant.”
