The Daily Mail reports that West Ham United and Southampton are keen to sign West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Sam Johnston on a free transfer in the summer.

England goalkeeper Sam Johnstone is set for a return to the Premier League. To provide a major boost to Gareth Southgate.

The West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper is out of contract at the end of the season. And Sportsmail understands the Championship club are now virtually resigned to the prospect of Johnstone leaving on a free transfer ahead of next season.

That allows him to begin talks with foreign clubs as soon as the new year kicks in. However, it appears his chances of a move to the Premier League are greater than the

Hammers, who were rejected from a £6m offer last summer. Turned to grab Alphonse Areola from Paris Saint-Germain. On loan this season,

the “Saints” have Alex McCarthy as a hand, while Fraser Forster’s future is uncertain because it has been released on loan several times.

However, “Muay Lok” is still trying to negotiate to extend the contract with this Dan. Which referred to 7 clean sheets this season.
