West Ham have signed Wolves defender Roger Johnson on loan until the end of the season.
The former Cardiff City and Birmingham City player
had a spell with Sheffield Wednesday
earlier in 2013-14 campaign.
Johnson, 30, moved to Molineux from St Andrew's in July 2011.
Hammers manager Sam Allardyce
has been backed by the club's owners
despite seeing the side slip to 19th in the Premier League and
losing 5-0 to Nottingham Forest
in the FA Cup.
Central defenders James Collins and James Tomkins were injured in the
Boxing Day defeat by Arsenal
draw with West Brom
two days later respectively.
Fellow centre-back Winston Reid is still recovering from ankle surgery in November, while striker Andy Carroll has yet to play this season because of a foot injury.
Everton's Johnny Heitinga
rejected a move to West Ham
despite the two clubs agreeing terms over the Dutch defender earlier this month.
Wolves manager Kenny Jackett
transfer-listed Johnson and three other players
in June following the club's relegation to League One, 12 months after they dropped into the Championship.
"It's a really good opportunity for him because he's going to a Premier League club,"
told the Express and Star in Wolverhampton.
