Percy reckons we want £20 million.

So that's him staying then and leaving on a free next summer. We never learn. Anything above £8 million is having the buyers pants down.

I want a round the world cruise for my birtnday dont mean its going to happen. Anything more than what we initially paid out for the man is good business for us. I honestly wonder besides possibly sides coming up where he could go in as #1
O Albion we love you

Percy’s right.
Sam Johnstone is one of the top five goalkeepers in the country and probably worth a lot more than £20m.

I’ve no problem with the message being £20m but there’s a very limited market so I don’t think we will get. 

Spurs
Leeds
Burnley if Pope goes
Man Utd if De Gea goes

Those are four I’ve seen credited with an interest.

West Ham and Palace also have purported interest.

West Ham is probably the most realistic as they’d both have the position available (Fabianski is 36 and while just signing an extension, only has one year on his contract) and the money to buy him.

£20,000,000 though? Grab both of their arms at the soggy end and pull very, very hard; very, very quickly.

it’s in line with the values of the likes of Pope and Ramsdale. We could get it but probably closer to £15 million +\- a couple million.

Totally different contractual situations though.

A drop of £5m (1/4 of total value) from starting price due to contract sounds right to me. We certainly won’t be selling for sub £10m and his reputation currently validates that starting point.

He's free at the end of next season. We aren't getting £20 million, we aren't getting £15 million, I doubt we'll get £10 million. Then there is a sell on clause.

My guess would be he'll go for an undisclosed £8 million.

Read somewhere that Watford are interested. If so, I'd break their arm off for a part-exchange with Foster.

Foster's been strongly linked to a move to bolster the Manchester City squad next season over the last couple of weeks.

That will be the same Ben Foster who couldn't force his way into Watford's team for most of this season. He was great, but move on.

Foster is nearly as old as me ..... well, sort of, and he's had problems with his fingers. I wouldnt touch him now. Going to Man City and playing three games a season is one thing, a 46 game Championship season is something completely different.

As for Johnstone, I'd be very surprised and really pleased if we got 20 million for him. Cant see it myself. If we get anything above 10 million it's good business for a keeper who has only a year on his contract.

If the inevitable happens and SJ moved on, what are the chances of us seeing Alex Palmer in goal next season?  He's had a good season at Lincoln and is 24 now.
 Josh Griffiths has had a great season at Cheltenham too although I did read somewhere that Saints are looking to sign him in the Summer.

Palmer's chances are fairly high, no brainer to put him in unless someone becomes available on a good deal.

On Griffiths, if other teams weren't scouting him even before this season id be disappointed. He's had this level of chatter and hype for a few years.

In fairness to Foster he was their no 1 for most of the season till injured

Totally different contractual situations though.

Too much is being made of this. Plenty of players go for big money with a year left on their contract. Palace, West Ham etc can’t afford to wait a year if they want him and if they rate him then £15-£20m to sign a keeper to be their number one for the next 5 years isn’t going to trouble them. Fairly low and bogstandard fee for a premiership player, certainly wouldn’t cause any waves.

Just heard on sky we have admitted we will sell him to fund transfers. They must be expecting a decent chunk of cash.

Glad we have two decent young lads, hopefully they can step up

I for one will be very sorry to see Sam, Player of the Season, move away.
He has developed into an outstanding goalkeeper at the highest level and our best keeper for many years including Fozzie and Calamity who made too many errors.

The levels of negativity towards Sam are well...strange. Did you see Henderson for United against Liverpool ? If Sam produced a display like that this thread would be in meltdown. De Gea and Henderson between them (or individually) have made multiple times as many mistakes as Sam. Plenty of mistakes among the other keepers this year also. Foster good keeper but he made mistakes. We seem to expect perfection.
