Johnstone handed new squad number

Sam Johnstone has been handed the No.1 shirt.

Johnstone today rejoined Villa after spending six months on loan in the previous campaign after initially joining in the January transfer window.

Steve Bruce swooped for the Man Utd stopper once again after being impressed by his performances in claret and blue.

Bruce spoke in his final press conference of talking to Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho about agreeing another deal and this was finalised today.

Johnstone wore No.34 in his last spell but will now don No.1 as Pierluigi Gollini continues his 18-month loan at Atalanta. 

Previous players to have worn No.1 include Jimmy Rimmer, Nigel Spink, Mark Bosnich and Brad Friedel.
