JASPER AN­SWERS WEIR CALL

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

JASPER JOHNS may have been shown the door by Ever­ton but the defender be­lieves his time with the Tof­fees has earned him the re­spect of his new Sh­effield United boss.

David Weir was the re­serve-team man­ager with the Pre­mier League out­fit be­fore the 18-year-old was re­leased in the sum­mer and snapped up by the Blades on a two-year deal.

“I know how he works and he knows what I am ca­pa­ble of,” said Johns.

“David is very re­laxed which is good as it makes you re­lax in train­ing when you are do­ing his drills.

“It is up to me to work hard at my game and prove my­self to him.”
