‘Stupid offer’ – Many West Brom fans react to transfer bid from West Ham United



West Ham United have had a bid rejected for West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Sam Johnstone, according to the Athletic.

The 28-year-old is attracting plenty of interest after an impressive Premier League campaign last term, despite the Baggies’ relegation to the Championship.

Johnstone kept only six clean sheets in 37 games last term, but his performances were generally impressive and a move back to the top-flight looks to be on the cards.

Arsenal and Spurs are said to be monitoring Johnstone, whose contract expires at the end of next season meaning that he could be available to sign on a free.

It is unknown how much the bid was worth, but Albion value Johnstone at a price of £10million and the offer was said to be lower than that.

Albion will be braced for further interest in Johnstone this summer, and there is every chance of him leaving to move back up to the Premier League.
