Marvin Johnson
Marvin Johnson

Marvin Johnson enjoyed a profitable loan spell at Sheffield United in 2018/19, playing a key part as the Blades won promotion to the Premier League.

The winger moved to Bramall Lane from Middlesbrough, whom he joined in 2017 in a three-year deal from Oxford United. Marvin will no doubt be looking to make his mark under new boss Jonathan Woodgate in 2019/20, who has already been impressed with the midfielder’s efforts.

Marvin’s stay in Oxford was relatively short, a result of his electric form attracting the likes of Hull City and Birmingham City as he helped the Us reach the Checkatrade Trophy final in an impressive campaign.

Marvin had previously played for Motherwell, Kidderminster Harriers and Solihull Moors.
