Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone is set to be a wanted man this summer, according to reports.

The Daily Mail claims both Derby County and Burnley want to bring the player to their club this summer, after his impressive displays away from the Premier League champions.

Johnstone has been loaned away from the Red Devils on a number of occasions, representing five different clubs since signing professional forms at Old Trafford in 2011.

That includes Oldham, Scunthorpe, Walsall and Yeovil, although it's his current spell at Championship side Doncaster which has seen the bigger names in the division start to take note.

The 21-year-old joined the club on an emergency loan deal for Ross Turnbull, but has kept his position between the sticks with three clean sheets in his last five games. He also have plenty of international recognition, having represented England at youth level between U16 and U20.

At Manchester United, he helped the juniors win the FA Youth Cup in 2011, and has been on the first team bench on a couple of occasions this year.

And, manager David Moyes has certainly shown no signs of letting the youngster leave Old Trafford, having handed him a new three-and-a-half year contract in January.

However, Spanish stopper David de Gea could be first choice for the Red Devils for years to come, and if the Englishman wants regular first team football, he may have to leave the club for a final time this summer.
