Shorten class references - adding import statements for a single field

I'm trying to add a import statement for newly altered field(my inspection replaces the deprecated method name with the  supported one).Example:
private DeprecatedClass s = new DeprecatedClass.getInstance();
after applying a fix
private DeprecatedClass s = new SupportedClass.getInstance();

I've found code to add a new field and automatically add a import for it.

 PsiField newField =
 factory.createFieldFromText("private static final java.util.List  myList = new java.util.LinkedList();", parentClass);
final PsiElement addedField = parentClass.add(newField);
 CodeStyleManager codeStyleManager =


But how could I create an import of the method I changed? (in the example I've provided before it would be import com.SupportedClass;)
What to pass to shortenClassReference method?
I've tried passing directly a field created from text like "private DeprecatedClass s = new SupportedClass.getInstance();" but it doesn't work.
I would happy provide the fully qualified name of the class i want to import but the shortenClassReference method takes only PsiElements as parameters.

Thanks in advance

You need to create field with initializer containing fully qualified name of your class, e.g. 'private DeprecatedClass s = new com.SupportedClass.getInstance();'
and use remaining code of quoted example
