Sam Johnstone played every minute of Albion’s Sky Bet Championship campaign after arriving at The Hawthorns from Manchester United for an undisclosed fee.

The Preston-born shot-stopper was Albion’s first recruit of the 2018 summer transfer window having agreed a four-year contract fresh from an acclaimed season on loan to neighbours Aston Villa which finished with a defeat in the Championship Play Off final at Wembley.
 
Villa proved to be the seventh club to which Johnstone was loaned to after joining United’s academy in 2011.
 
He accumulated experience at Oldham, Scunthorpe, Walsall, Yeovil Town, Doncaster Rovers, Preston and finally Villa before seizing the chance to put down his goalkeeping marker on a more permanent basis at The Hawthorns.
 
Sam has been recognised by the England national team at under-17, under-19 and under-20 age group levels.
