West Ham are lining up a £4million bid for Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone with Joe Hart set to leave the club in the summer, according to reports.

Johnstone has been on loan at Aston Villa since January 2017 and has impressed this season as the club look to secure promotion back to the Premier League.

Hart, meanwhile, has had a tough season at the London Stadium and the Daily Mirror claims that the Hammers will send him back to parent club Manchester City in the summer.

The Red Devils took up their option on Johnstone to tie him down until 2019 and the report continues by saying that a fee of £4million could be enough to secure his services.

He has never really made it at Old Trafford with numerous loan spells at Oldham, Scunthorpe United, Walsall, Yeovil Town, Doncaster Rovers, Preston and now Aston Villa.

However, he has really started to prove himself this term at Villa Park and could get his Premier League breakthrough if the Hammers fork out the money in the summer.
