Jermaine Johnson has told swfc.co.uk he is delighted to be back at the club for pre-season training after signing a new one-year deal last week.
The Jamaican has reported back for duty after a busy summer on the international front and is now looking forward to the weeks ahead as Wednesday prepare for the new campaign.
The Owls travel to Edgeley Park this evening to face Stockport County in Rodger Wylde’s testimonial fixture and Johnson is keen to figure at some point during the 90 minutes.
He said: "I’m hoping to play some part in the game tonight, to build up my fitness and see where I am at.
“It will be a good test for the boys so early in pre-season.
“I’ve been in training camps with the national team and playing games as well so I feel in good shape but now I’m happy to be back in Sheffield, training with the team.”
The 33-year-old, who scored seven goals for Wednesday last season, revealed it was an easy decision to put pen to paper on a new contract at Hillsborough.
Johnson, who is into his seventh year with Wednesday, added: “It’s a real pleasure to be back at this club for pre-season because it’s where I enjoy my football and I’m really looking forward to the season starting.
“I’m really happy at the moment.
“It’s like I am part of a family here, the fans have always shown me tremendous support so it was an easy decision for me to sign a new deal to stay at this club.”
