Hull City launch bid for versatile League One star



Hull City have submitted a bid for Marvin Johnson, according to Sky Sports News.

Sky sources understand that Hull City have followed up their interest in Oxford United star Marvin Johnson with a concrete offer.

Marvin Johnson only moved to Oxford United from Motherwell last summer but he has attracted plenty of interest.

Last season, there were over thirty scouts watching him at some games, including representatives from Manchester City and Celtic.

The 26-year-old has always operated as a left winger until last season, where he featured at left back for some games.

Now the former Solihull Moors and Kidderminster Harriers man is able to play anywhere down the left hand side.

This summer, Johnson has been attracted interest from Leicester City, Birmingham City and Aston Villa but Hull have tried to steal a march in this race by lodging a formal bid.

Marvin Johnson has played 40 games for Oxford United since arriving last summer and he scored in midweek – notching a rebound after his initial penalty miss in a cup loss against Cheltenham Town.

Hull City are still looking to add players to their squad ahead of the transfer deadline after losing a number of first team members this summer.

The Verdict

As an immediate fix, you would expect Hull to utilise Marvin Johnson as a left back as their only option in that department is young Max Clark, who had a mixed start to his senior career at Hull.

If Hull sign a left back as well, you would expect Leonid Slutsky to play Johnson further forward.

The 26-year-old is very talented and would be hungry to impress at a higher level.
