Leeds: Whites linked with Sam Johnstone move

Leeds: Whites linked with Sam Johnstone move - Leeds United

Leeds United are seen as potential suitors for Sam Johnstone this summer, with the goalkeeper expected to leave West Brom.

The Whites are preparing for Saturday’s daunting trip to soon-to-be-champions Manchester City, as Marcelo Bielsa’s side look to spring a surprise.

Away from the on-field action, however, Leeds continue to be linked with summer additions, as Bielsa looks to make his squad even more formidable.

Leeds keen on Johnstone signing

According to The Athletic‘s Steve Madeley, Johnstone is a considered an option to come in and replace Kiko Casilla next season, with the Spanish veteran expected to leave Elland Road.

The England international’s current West Brom deal expires in 2022, and with the Baggies on the verge of relegation, they will likely allow him to leave this summer, earning a fee for him in the process.

Johnstone has been described as ‘outstanding’ by Gary Lineker – he has been in red hot form despite playing in a struggling Baggies side, leading the top flight in saves.

Transfer Tavern take

The Englishman could be an excellent rival to Illan Meslier moving forward, pushing him for a starting berth and keeping the youngster on his toes.

At 28, Johnstone is both experienced at the top level and also young enough for a goalkeeper that he could still have many years left in him at the top.

In other news, one reported Leeds target still favours a move to England – find out who it is here.
