Marvin Johnson says ‘ambition’ at Sheffield Wednesday convinced the former Motherwell winger to sign for the League One club.
The 30-year-old spent just over a year at the Scottish Premiership club after leaving non-league Kidderminster Harriers. He was a huge hit, however, Motherwell making a high six-figure sum off his initial move to Oxford United and subsequent departure to Middlesbrough. Johnson left ‘Boro earlier this summer and now joins Sheffield Wednesday.
Johnson has been with rivals Sheffield United on loan. The former ‘Well winger said of his move to Sheffield Wednesday: “I took a lot of time to consider my options. I had quite a few options in the Championship but thinking of it as a whole and meeting the gaffer, the ambition was there.
“I’m an ambitious player. Hopefully I can help and get the squad back where it needs to be.
“He didn’t say anything that any manager wouldn’t say to get a player he wants but he has been brilliant.”
