According to the Daily Mail, Leeds United are one of ten clubs to have enquired about signing Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone.

The Whites have been active in the transfer market this summer, and have already signed one goalkeeper in former England international Robert Green.

However, manager Garry Monk may yet be keen on changing his options in goal, with the Daily Mail claiming that they have an interest in signing Sam Johnstone from Manchester United.

The 23-year-old has come up through the ranks at Old Trafford but has yet to establish himself in the first team setup, and with Jose Mourinho likely to go with David De Gea and Sergio Romero as his two senior goalkeepers next season, Johnstone may want to go out and play football again.

Johnstone enjoyed two recent loan spells with hometown club Preston North End, and it's now believed that ten Championship clubs have asked about taking him on loan this season.

The Daily Mail claim that Fulham, Wolves, Leeds, Bristol City, Wigan and Nottingham Forest are just some of the clubs interested, with United potentially open to letting him go out on loan again.

Leeds already have Green on board, but interest in Johnstone will trigger questions about the future of last season's first-choice Marco Silvestri, as well as Ross Turnbull, who only signed for the club last summer.

If one or even both leave, then Monk may well want another goalkeeper in his ranks - and Johnstone, despite coming from Leeds' fierce rivals Manchester United, would fit the bill having impressed with Preston.
