Southampton plan January offer for West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone

Southampton are planning a January offer for West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

The Express & Star says out of contract in June, Johnstone's performances for both club and country have led to a host of top-flight clubs sending scouts to watch him in recent months.

Now established in the England set-up, Johnstone knows he needs to be playing Premier League football at the start of the 2021/22 season to have a realistic chance of going to the World Cup.

The 28-year-old has held talks with Albion about extending his contract at The Hawthorns.

But Premier League clubs are circling with the keeper potentially available on a free transfer this summer.

In a bid to jump ahead of the queue, Southampton are believed to weighing up a bid for Johnstone this January.
