​Middlesbrough have announced the signing of highly rated winger Marvin Johnson from Oxford United on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.


The 26-year-old has worked his way up through the lower leagues of English football to earn his move to the ​Championship outfit.

He started his career with Solihull Moors before moving to Romulus in the Northern Premier League. He then played over 100 games for Kidderminster Harriers before a spell with Motherwell in Scotland.

He returned to England with Oxford in 2016 and impressed with them enough to attract interest from Boro.


Johnson was also a target of another of the Premier League's relegated clubs last season ​Hull City, but the Tigers have missed out on deadline day.

The ​Birmingham-born star will wear the number 21 jersey and hope to make a good impact for his new club, who will be hoping to get back up to the ​Premier League at the first time of asking.
