Good signing for West Bromwich Albion?

Johnstone is a very good goalkeeper who proved himself in the Championship last season, as the United-owned man did tremendously well for Villa last season.

The 25-year-old was one of the best goalkeepers in the division, and he would be a brilliant signing for West Brom, especially for £5m.

With David de Gea the clear number one at United, it is hard to see Johnstone having a long-term future at Old Trafford, and it would make sense for him to move to West Brom on a permanent deal.
