Done Deal: Middlesbrough secure yet another summer transfer deal

Published

on

Championship club Middlesbrough have confirmed the signing of Oxford United’s Marvin Johnson on a three-year deal, as announced by the club’s official website.

The 26-year-old had been linked with a move to Garry Monk’s side for some time throughout this summer’s transfer window after an impressive season during the 2016/17 campaign.

Johnson, who played an unbelievable 61 competitive games last season, played in a total of six different positions last term from left-back all the way to centre-forward.

The Englishman only joined Oxford United last year from Motherwell but couldn’t turn down the chance of playing in a higher league and for a club who are aiming for promotion to the Premier League.

Due to a confidentiality agreement involved with the deal, Middlesbrough couldn’t disclose what the official fee paid to Oxford was.

The Verdict

This is a good signing for Middlesbrough and here at FLW, we’re sure Monk is relieved to have finalised it before the deadline passes.

His versatility alone makes him a great asset for any side, especially during a season as long as the Championship’s.

He is competent going forward and solid in defence.

Adding a player like Johnson to their squad can add a lot of strength in many different areas to Middlesbrough’s game.
