Sam Johnstone’s agent admits he has plenty of options to leave Manchester United

by Tanveer Arayan


Sam Johnstone‘s representatives have confirmed he has plenty of options to leave Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

The 24-year-old has resigned himself to leaving Old Trafford as he’s failed to make a single first-team appearance for the club.

He spent the second half of 2016-17 on loan at Aston Villa and quickly worked his way into the squad as Steve Bruce’s first-choice keeper at Villa Park, making a total of 22 appearances in the Championship

Speaking about a move, his representative claimed he’s considering a potential exit.

“Sam has a number of options and is considering them all at this moment in time,” said a representative for his agents James Grant Sports.

He’s spent a total of nine separate loan spells with seven different clubs over the last six years and he’s been able to pick up first-team opportunities.

Johnstone is a product of the Man United academy and was part of the squad that won the 2011 FA Youth Cup, alongside the likes of Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard, Michael Keane, Tyler Blackett and Ravel Morrison.

When he first signed with the Midlands side Johnstone claimed he needed to be selfish after failing to make an appearance for United at a first-team level, and it seems he could be set to leave with the likes of Leicester City and Huddersfield Town thought to be interested in his services.
