Sheffield Wednesday are believed to be closing in on a deal to sign Marvin Johnson, according to Yorkshire Live.
Johnson has been a free-agent since his spell with Middlesbrough reached a conclusion at the end of the 2020/21 season last term.
The 30-year-old had been with Boro since 2017, and went on to make 43 appearances in total for the Championship side last term, as they finished tenth in the second-tier standings, whilst under the management of Neil Warnock.
But after departing Middlesbrough in the summer, it seems as though Johnson is set for a move to Hillsborough with Sheffield Wednesday.
The Owls will be targeting promotion back into the Championship at the first time of asking this season, with their new league campaign set to get underway this weekend, when they take on Charlton Athletic, in what is likely to be a tricky test for Darren Moore’s side.
What was the score when Sheffield Wednesday last played at each of these 24 stadiums?
Yorkshire Live claim that Johnson has agreed personal terms with the League One side, with a medical already having taking place.
Plenty of Sheffield Wednesday supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on the Owls’ rumoured move for Johnson this summer.
Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below….
