Crystal Palace move for released West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone

Released West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone is a target for Crystal Palace.

The London Evening Standard says Johnstone is a free agent this summer after West Brom confirmed on Tuesday that he would be leaving the club when his contract expires at the end of June.

The 29-year-old has been watched by several clubs, who have all been aware that he was unlikely to pen fresh terms at The Hawthorns.

Tottenham were one of those clubs tracking Johnstone as they aimed to sign a homegrown goalkeeper this summer, but have instead swooped for Southampton's Fraser Forster.

Johnstone, who has been capped three times at senior level by England, is still attracting plenty of interest, however, and Crystal Palace are one of those teams tracking him.

The Eagles hold a long-term interest in the 'keeper and first scouted him five years ago when he was deciding to leave Manchester United.
