Hull’s bid for winger Marvin Johnson has been rejected, Oxford boss Pep Clotet has confirmed.
but Oxford insist he is “not for sale”.
Johnson impressed as Oxford beat Portsmouth 3-0 in Sky Bet League One on Saturday and Clotet praised Johnson’s display.
He said: “The same situation applies to what the chairman said on Wednesday – Marvin is not for sale.
“Apart from that 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.
“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.”
Johnson joined Oxford from Motherwell a year ago for £650,000 and has since made over 40 appearances for the club.
He scored Oxford’s opener in last Tuesday’s 4-3 defeat to Cheltenham in the EFL Cup.
Johnson began his career at Solihull Moors before moving to Kidderminster Harriers in 2012. He had a short spell at Hednesford before signing for Motherwell.
