Wolves agree 7m fee for Roger Johnson

Roger that! Wolves have agreed a ?7m fee for Roger Johnson Wolves are set to sign Birmingham City defender Roger Johnson in a ?7million deal. Sportsmail revealed the move was on the cards last month and after lengthy negotiations the two clubs have now settled on a fee. Johnson is in talks at Molineux and if it goes through the deal will equal the club record set last summer when striker Steven Fletcher joined from Burnley. Tottenham and Blackburn have also been linked with the 28-year-old former Cardiff and Wycombe centre back but Wolves boss Mick McCarthy looks set to get his man. Wolves conceded 66 league goals last season and only survived relegation on the last day - making defensive reinforcements a priority for McCarthy. Wolves upped their interest after missing out on Matt Mills, who moved to Leicester in a ?4m deal. Birmingham had been holding out for ?10m for Johnson but a compromise has been reached for the man who cost ?5m from Cardiff two years ago. Club record: The fee matches that paid for Steven Fletcher Johnson formed an impressive central defensive pairing at St Andrew's with Scott Dann - who is also set to leave the relegated club. Johnson will become Wolves' third the signing of the summer after goalkeeper Dorus de Vries and midfielder Jamie O'Hara arrived from Swansea and Tottenham respectively.  CLICK HERE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR FREE FANTASY FOOTBALL GAMEWolves ready to test Birmingham's resolve with ?7m move for Roger JohnsonAll the latest Wolves news, features and opinion
