Sheffield Wednesday have signed central defender Reda Johnson from Plymouth Argyle for an undisclosed fee.

The 22-year-old, who has penned a three-and-a-half-year-deal, joined Argyle in 2009 and made 43 appearances.

Wednesday manager Alan Irvine told the club website: "He is a young, athletic defender who I have been aware of for some time.

"It is no secret that we have been looking to strengthen our defence and Reda is a quality addition."

He added: "He is composed on the ball, very strong in the air and in the tackle and has plenty of experience for a player of 22.


"I would like to thank [chairman] Milan Mandaric for cutting short his holiday to help me bring in Reda to Hillsborough and I am sure the reward will be some excellent performances on the pitch."

Johnson, a Benin international, started his career in his native France, playing for Gueugnon and Amiens before his move to Plymouth.
