Doncaster Rovers have agreed a deal with Manchester United to keep on-loan goalkeeper Sam Johnstone until the end of the season.

In a short statement on Rovers’ website, the club today confirmed that the 21-year-old will stay at the Keepmoat Stadium for the final seven games of the season “subject to clearance”.

Johnstone’s original loan extension had been due to expire after tomorrow’s game with Birmingham City.

The England Under 21 international has kept four clean sheets in 11 appearances since taking over from the fit-again Ross Turnbull.
