Marvin Johnson has told Oxford United manager Pep Clotet he wants to leave the club, Sky Sports News understands.

Oxford rejected a bid, believed to be around £1m, from Hull over the weekend, with Clotet reiterating his chairman's stance that the winger is not for sale.

However Johnson who joined from Motherwell a year ago for £400,000 has asked Oxford to let him go.

He impressed as Oxford beat Portsmouth 3-0 in Sky Bet League One on Saturday and Clotet praised his display.

"I'm very happy with his performance, his attitude and his commitment. He worked hard for his teammates and it was a tough game for him in the first half," said Clotet.

"When the game opened up in the second half he gave a glimpse of what he can do and he was fantastic going forward as well."
