Marv: Well must let me go.

Byline: MICHAEL GANNON

WANTAWAY winger Marvin Johnson last night begged Motherwell not to hold him to ransom in the final few hours of the transfer window.

The 25-year-old hit back after the Fir Park club issued a strongly-worded statement insisting they won't allow him to leave on the cheap.

Well knocked back a bid from Oxford in the summer but Record Sport understands Charlton, Birmingham, QPR and Brighton are ready to fight it out for a deadline-day raid.

Johnson fired in a transfer request on Monday before the Steelmen responded.

But his agent Gino Culbertson hit back: "Marvin handed in a transfer request due to personal and family reasons which the club have been aware of for some time.

"A club can put any price on a player's head but they're only worth what a club is willing to pay.

"Motherwell's valuation of Marvin is unreasonable and overinflated, hence the lack of interest and offers.

"We hope the matter will be resolved amicably."
