Aberdeen want Fergie to help get Man Utd keeper Johnstone

Scotland club Aberdeen are hoping to sign Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone, with the help of former Red Devils and Dons manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The 23-year-old, who has enjoyed loan spells at Oldham Athletic, Yeovil Town, Scunthorpe United, Doncaster Rovers and Preston North End, is unlikely to feature in Jose Mourinho's plans next season.

According to the Daily Express, Pittodrie boss Derek McInnes is currently looking to add a keeper to his squad and has identified Johnstone as a possible candidate.

McInnes is hoping that Ferguson could help him convince Johnstone to join the Scottish club he guided to unbridled success in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
