With manager Steve Bruce saying the other day that he hoped progress would be made on Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone in 24/48 hours, it’s now being reported that United and manager Jose Mourinho have now made their decision.
We have been waiting on the club to make a decision about the 24 year old for a number of weeks now, but Mourinho was weighing up whether to let him out on loan again for more experience for 12 months or whether to include him in their travelling party to the USA that takes place next week, and the Birmingham Mail were one of many to report on Saturday that the decision had finally been made, and he’s now on his way to us.
It’s said that Johnstone will officially sign terms on Monday on a loan deal with the coming campaign.
With speculation linking us with a move for Manchester City’s Joe Hart, that is now being reported as whilst we made a concrete interest in the player, the England No 1 is unwilling to drop a division so it effectively ends our interest.
Personally I think that’s a mistake on Hart’s part if true, but hey it’s his career and again now I only hope we have a buy deal on Johnstone if it comes off.
