Boris Johnson is understood to have 'agreed to buy' a multi-million-pound house in Oxfordshire. 

The Guardian reported that the former prime minister is said to be moving to a £4m nine-bedroom, Grade II-listed home in the county

The paper previously reported on January 30 that Mr Johnson had been viewing a property in Oxfordshire.

And a spokesman for Boris Johnson has not denied this when asked by the Oxford Mail.

The home is located near to his former constituency of Henley, for which he served as MP between 2001 and 2008.

The move has added to speculation that Mr Johnson is planning on running for the seat at the next general election.

The 58-year-old is currently MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, a marginal seat in north-west London with a majority of 7,200.

Henley has a much bigger majority of 32,189 but has been represented by John Howell MP since 2008.

When asked to comment on these claims a spokesman for the former prime minister said: “Boris Johnson has announced he is standing in Uxbridge and South Ruislip.

“Any claim to the contrary is completely incorrect.”

On the matter of living arrangements, the spokesman declined to comment.
