West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Sam Johnstone has claimed that his future is in hands of his club following their relegation from the Premier League.
The Telegraph claimed earlier this month that the Baggies were set to demand £20million if they failed to beat the drop with Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and West Ham United all having interest in the shot stopper.
Johnstone insists that he is focusing his attention on England after being named in the Three Lions’ provisional squad for the European Championships and as things stand, he is accepting of the fact that he will return to The Hawthorns for pre-season training.
The 28-year-old, who has a year to run on his current contract was named by Gareth Southgate in the initial squad along with Everton’s Jordan Pickford, Manchester United’s Dean Henderson and Sheffield United’s Aaron Ramsdale,
Current Tottenham number one, Hugo Lloris is out of contract in North London at the end of next season (Football.London).
“I’m still a West Brom player and I’m just looking forward to going away with England, working hard and being proud of the moment,” Johnstone told i.
“I know there has been a lot of talk about my future but it’s in West Brom’s hands rather than mine so I’ll just put it to the back of my head.
“You never know what can happen in football because it’s a crazy world where things can change quickly.
“I’ve still got a year left on my contract at West Brom so, as things stands, I’ll be going back there for pre-season.”
