Middlesbrough are not likely to stand in Marvin Johnson’s way in the transfer window if a club looks to secure the 28-year-old’s service on a permanent basis.
It was Garry Monk who opted to sign Johnson for Boro in the summer of 2017, with the now Birmingham City boss taking a punt on the Oxford winger.
However, his spell at Boro hasn’t gone as planned, with Johnson now finding himself out on loan with Sheffield United.
According to the Sheffield Star, Boro will not play hardball if the Blades want to sign Johnson permanently.
However, it’s unclear if Chris Wilder plans to do that, with the winger managing just seven Championship appearances this season and only one start.
So, could another Championship club come in and take a chance on the winger in the future?
