Sam Johnstone extends Doncaster Rovers loan

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United have announced that Sam Johnstone has extended his loan spell with Doncaster Rovers.

The 21-year-old’s original loan spell expired in January but an extension means he will remain at Paul Dickov’s side until at least 28 January.

Johnstone has been in excellent form for Doncaster having kept four clean sheets in his last seven games and will be delighted to have extended his loan which will allow him to continue playing regular first-team football.

Earlier this season, Johnstone made it clear he wanted his future to be with Man United but admitted he was happy to remain on loan at Doncaster for the time being in order to keep playing senior football and he has now been given that opportunity.

As we’ve previously said, Johnstone faces a tough task in uprooting David de Gea as United’s no.1 for what could be the next decade but the best chance has is to continue progressing on loan.
