Aston Villa are pleased to announce the signing of Sam Johnstone on a season-long loan.
Goalkeeper Johnstone spent six months with us last season after joining from Manchester United in January 2017, making 22 appearances for the claret and blues.
Johnstone has now rejoined the club and will link up with Steve Bruce’s side as we continue pre-season ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
He said: “I am delighted to be back.
“I really enjoyed my last spell here – it’s a great club with top players and passionate fans.
“I can’t wait to get started now.
"I believe it can be a special season for all of us and I will be working hard each and every day to produce the kind of performances that will help us achieve what we’re aiming for.”
