We are monitoring Stade Reims goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, according to Football Insider reporter Pete O’Rourke.

A “well-placed source” has told the website that the club, along with Cardiff City and Bristol City, are keeping tabs on the 26-year-old.

Whether you believe the report or not, the club are likely considering potential options if they can’t retain Sam Johnstone in the summer.

The stopper will return to Manchester United at the end of the season, and he has been linked with moves to a number of Premier League teams.

The Birmingham Mail report we are hopeful of retaining the 25-year-old’s services, but only if we are promoted back to the top flight.

If we don’t make it through the playoffs, preparations are likely being put in place to sign a new number one.

Mendy has been a regular for Stade Reims in Ligue Two this season. He has played 31 times, conceding 18 and keeping an impressive 18 clean sheets, with his club having become champions of the French second tier.
