Rumour Mill-Johnson is a Jermaine Point for Laws

Rumour Mill-Johnson is a Jermaine Point for Laws

Burnley along with rival Championship clubs Nottingham Forest and Leeds are preparing to make a move for Sheffield Wednesday winger Jermaine Johnson.

The player could be signed in an emergency loan deal, with a view to making the move permanent in the January transfer window.

The 30 year old was born in Kingston, Jamiaca and is a full international for the Reggae Boyz.

He started his career with Jamiacan club, Tivoli Gardens before coming to England in 2001 to play on loan for first Bolton Wanderers and then later for Oldham Athletic during two spells between 2003-2006. Colin Todd then signed him for Bradford City in a one-year deal in June 2006.

It was Brian Laws himself then manager at Sheffield Wednesday who brought him to Hillsborough for a transfer fee in excess of £250,000 in January 2007.

Forest recently made a bid for him in the summer transfer window but it was rejected. Johnson is now however in the final year of his contract and the financially-stricken club will not want to lose out should he stay until next summer and then leave on a Bosman.

Forest had a £350,000 bid for the Jamaican international rejected back in July, with the Owls insisting it wasn't enough and that he wasn't for sale.

Makes no sense to me. Not always good enough in the Championship. Eagles, Wallace & Wade all better wingers.
