Steve Bruce rules out West Brom move for Sam Johnstone

Aston Villa manager Steve Bruce has clarified that Sam Johnstone will honour the remainder of his loan contract with the Villains despite the ongoing interest from West Bromwich Albion. The 24-year-old has been identified as the prime target for the Baggies, who are eyeing a long-term replacement for Ben Foster.

Villa claimed a convincing 5-0 win over Bristol City to keep their promotion hopes alive on New Year's Day and shortly after the game, Bruce stressed that Johnstone is unlikely to be recalled by parent club Manchester United midway through the campaign.
