The Football League Paper - - FOCUS ON -

JER­MAINE JOHN­SON is adamant he’ll bide his time be­fore mak­ing a de­ci­sion on his fu­ture af­ter leav­ing Sh­effield Wed­nes­day.

John­son made over 200 ap­pear­ances for the Owls dur­ing his seven years in SouthYork­shire and has at­tracted in­ter­est from abroad.

But the Ja­maica in­ter­na­tional, 33, in­sists he has no in­ten­tion of leav­ing these shores just yet.

“I want to stay in Eng­land as I love play­ing here and I am keep­ing my fin­gers crossed that I will soon fix my­self up with a new club,” said John­son.

“It was a big de­ci­sion for me to leave Sh­effield Wed­nes­day, but I feel it is time to move on.

“I be­lieve there has been some in­ter­est from a few clubs about sign­ing me, but I will leave that all up to my agent.

“I have lot of ex­pe­ri­ence hav­ing played in the Pre­mier League with Bolton and also hav­ing won over 70 caps for Ja­maica.

“I still feel I have a lot to of­fer to a new club and I am feel­ing as fit as I have ever been.

“I want to play at the high­est level pos­si­ble and I will now see what of­fers come my way be­fore mak­ing a de­ci­sion on my fu­ture.”

Join­ing John­son out of Hills­bor­ough’s door will be Adam Davies, Ar­ron Jame­son, Reda John­son, Anthony Gard­ner, Miguel Llera, Martin Tay­lor, Jer­maine John­son and David Prut­ton.
