Jamaica international Jermaine Johnson is looking for a return to England.Jamaica international Jermaine Johnson is looking for a return to England having been deemed surplus to requirements at Oldham.
The pacey former Bolton forward was shown the door at Boundary Park after failing to live up to his potential at the North West outfit.
Johnson showed only sporadic glimpses of his talent last season but is confident of getting fixed up for the new campaign.
The player is currently on international duty with Jamaica and concedes that he is willing to take his career one step at a time as he bids to eventually return to The Premiership.
"Part of the reason they did not give me a new contract has to do with the chairman, who is concerned with the money they would have to pay me. It was the chairman's decision," Johnson told the Jamaica Observer.
"I was signed with them (Oldham) until the end of the season, but my agent is looking about getting me into another club. He is talking to some clubs so it is up to him to get the right team for me and when I return to England I will sort out everything.
"My aim right now is to go up to the next division and then try to work my way back into the Premier League."
