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."
