Johnson joins West Ham on loan

06 January 2014 08:46

West Ham have announced the loan signing of defender Roger Johnson from Wolves for the remainder of the season.

Johnson will be a welcome arrival at Upton Park with centre-backs Winston Reid, James Collins and James Tomkins all currently unavailable due to their respective injuries.

But the 30-year-old, who has spent the first half of the season at Sky Bet Championship club Sheffield Wednesday, eases the crisis somewhat and the Hammers confirmed he will be available for Wednesday's Capital One Cup semi-final first leg clash at Manchester City.
