Johnson blow as Hammers move in for central defender

Wednesday look to have lost out on extending Roger Johnson’s loan spell at the club, following reports that he has signed for West Ham.

The 30-year-old is said to be set to seal a move to the Hammers today and is expected to be named in their squad for Wednesday’s Capital One Cup semi-final against Manchester City.

Johnson has formed a promising centre back partnership with Glenn Loovens at Hillsborough in recent weeks. We had hoped to get him back at S6 on a new deal but now League West Ham have stepped in.
