Sam Johnstone of West Bromwich Albion makes a save during the Sky Bet Championship match between Hull City and West Bromwich Albion at MKM Stadium on March 5, 2022 in Hull, England. 

Crystal Palace have signed goalkeeper Sam Johnstone on a four-year deal.

The 29-year-old played 37 times for West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League in the 2020-21 season and won both the Supporters’ and Players’ Player of the Year awards.

He started his career at Manchester United, coming through the academy and excelling on loan in the Championship, most notably at Aston Villa.

Johnstone said: “I’m really excited to be here at Crystal Palace. It’s a great club with fantastic facilities and passionate supporters – I can’t wait to get started.”

Chairman Steve Parish said: “Sam is a player that we have admired for some time, and we are extremely pleased to welcome him to Crystal Palace. His extensive experience at club and international level, alongside his outstanding ability, will add even greater depth to our goalkeeping unit.”
