Wednesday boss Brian Laws is hopeful of adding a new winger to his squad before the weekend to cover for the suspended Jermaine Johnson.

Jamaican Johnson was sent off in controversial circumstances in the 1-0 defeat to West Brom during the week, but the Owls have decided against appealing against the decision by referee Andy D’Urso.

The jet-heeled winger had only just returned from a suspension for picking up consecutive yellow cards, and the Owls gaffer has been forced to look elsewhere to cover for the former Bradford City man.

Laws told the Sheffield Star: ‘I’m trying to bring a winger in before the weekend and have spoken to the club concerned and the player.’

Middlesbrough wingman Adam Johnson has already been linked with a loan move to Wednesday after impressive during his three-month maximum-stay stint with Watford this season.
