Sunderland chase Aston Villa target Sam Johnstone

  Sunderland chase Aston Villa target Sam Johnstone Following the £30m agreement between Everton and Sunderland for young goalkeeper Jordan Pickford the Black Cats are already stepping up their hunt for a new number one according to the Birmingham Mail. Sam Johnstone spent the second half of last season on loan at Villa Park impressing the Claret and Blue faithful, but now it seems Sunderland are going to do everything to bring the Manchester United keeper to the Stadium of Light. Johnstone is a very good shot stopper similar attributes to those of Pickford so it would be the perfect match for Sunderland, aged 24 very young for a goalkeeper he still has a lot to learn and improve his overall game. However, with both clubs in the Championship, this would be a perfect place for him to establish himself as a first choice with not many opportunities available at Manchester United due to the form of David De Gea. With nine loan spells during his career, it is time to play consistent first team football at one of the two biggest clubs in English footballing history. He has a very good pedigree also representing England at under 19 and 21 level. His Manchester United contract was extended until 2018 so both clubs will have to pay over the odds to sign him.

"We spoke with Aston Villa , I was upfront with them, the club were in return,” he said. "If I have to leave, there will be no problem. I have ambitions. I want to play in Europe, for a club that play in all the competitions. "I've been placed on the transfer list ." Amavi was regarded as one of the top

Aston Villa demand more from Sevilla for Jordan Amavi .
Aston Villa have told Sevilla to double their offer for full-back Jordan Amavi after Villa rejected the first bid tabled by the La Liga side, according to MARCA.. Amavi looks increasingly likely to leave Villa Park this summer as the Championship side look to raise funds for new signings. Villa chairman Tony Xia bragged that the club rejected a £25million bid for Amavi in January, but the Financial Fair Play restrictions on the club now mean that they are willing to accept a much lower offer for the player. Sevilla made an opening bid of £5.3million for the defender’s services but Villa are wanting to recoup the £9million they paid Nice for the 23-year-old back in 2015. Amavi struggled for form at Villa last season as Steve Bruce’s side slumped to a 13th place finish in the Championship, with the Villa boss reportedly placing Amavi on the transfer list as a result of his inconsistency.
