Sam Johnstone could stay put at West Brom beyond the summer transfer window, according to Birmingham Live journalist Joe Chapman.
The Lowdown: Johnstone linked with exit
The 28-year-old was arguably the Baggies’ standout player last season, performing impressively despite his side’s relegation back to the Championship.
Johnstone’s form earned him a place in England’s Euro 2020 squad and he has been linked with a summer exit, with a Premier League move mooted.
Will Adam Reach be a success at West Brom?
The Latest: Goalkeeper could stay put
It looks increasingly likely that the Englishman will still be a West Brom player come September.
The Verdict: Potential major boost
This is an enormous boost for Valerien Ismael and anyone associated with the Baggies, considering what an influential player Johnstone is at the Hawthorns.
Keeping hold of him would enhance their promotion hopes greatly, ensuring that they surely have the best goalkeeper in the Championship.
There is still time for Johnstone to seal a move elsewhere, but if he stays and helps his team return to the Premier League, he will be an even bigger hero than he already is.
In other news, another West Brom player is also rumoured to be staying put at the Hawthorns. Find out who it is here.
