Manchester United have signed veteran goalkeeper Lee Grant from Stoke and also announced the sale of goalkeeper Sam Johnstone to West Brom.

Grant, 35, will be providing cover for David De Gea and Sergio Romero.

The former England under-21 international began his career at Derby and has also spent time at Burnley, Oldham and Sheffield Wednesday.

He made 28 Premier League appearances for Stoke during the 2016-17 season, including a fantastic performance in a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.


Grant told the club’s official website: “Moving to Manchester United has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember. This was an opportunity that I couldn’t let pass and I’m thrilled to become a part of such a historic club.

“I’ve enjoyed every moment of my career so far and I’m now ready to continue learning and improving alongside some of the best players in the game. But at the same time, I intend to use my experience to help the team whenever possible.

“I want to say a huge thank you to those close to me who have supported me along my journey so far. I’m looking forward to meeting my team-mates and giving everything possible for the club in the upcoming season.”

Grant made only three Premier League appearances for Stoke last season
