Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone is linked with a string of Championship clubs.

Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone has reportedly attracted interest from a host of Championship clubs.

Fulham, Ipswich Town and Birmingham City are among the teams vying to take the 21-year-old on loan for next season, Sky Sports News claims.

Johnstone completed a successful loan spell at Doncaster Rovers last term, making 18 appearances there and keeping regular stopper Ross Turnbull out of the starting XI.

United handed Johnstone a new three-and-a-half-year contract in January, but are said to be keen to allow him to gain additional first-team experience elsewhere.
