Journalist Ryan Taylor of The Daily Express has shared news on another free agent that Tottenham Hotspur could sign this summer in West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

His performances at The Hawthorns last season prompted an England call courtesy of Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate, with pundit and former goalkeeper Paddy Kenny branding the 29-year-old an ‘unreal‘ shot stopper.
