'All you can ask for': David Seaman wowed by 'amazing' player Leeds reportedly want
Leeds United are reportedly eyeing Sam Johnstone, who is in the England squad for Euro 2020.
However, Leeds apparently have competition from the likes of Tottenham and West Ham.
Johnstone enjoyed a superb Premier League campaign for the Baggies despite their relegation.
The 28-year-old made a massive 166 saves last season, the most of any Premier League keeper.
Without Johnstone, West Brom most likely would have gone down a lot quicker.
Gareth Southgate rewarded Johnstone with a spot in the Three Lions squad for Euro 2020.
Ahead of the tournament, Seaman spoke to the Daily Mail about a number of Three Lions-related topics.
One of those was the goalkeeping selection, composed of Jordan Pickford, Dean Henderson and Johnstone.
“When you look at the others like Dean Henderson and Sam Johnstone, Sam had an amazing debut (against Romania),” said Seaman.
“He made a fantastic save and kept a clean sheet, that’s all that you can ask for.
“In Henderson, you’ve got a goalkeeper there who’s already done it with Sheffield United and he’s now doing it with Manchester United.”

Johnstone is such a talented player that he’s reportedly valued at £18million.
This is despite having just one year left on his contract for a club that will play in the Championship next season.
Sam Allardyce previously said to talkSPORT about him following an impressive 1-1 draw with Liverpool: “He’s one of the best.
“He’s right up there at the right level and he’d already saved more shots than anybody before yesterday.”
With Leeds potentially needing competition for Illan Meslier, he’d be a great shout for the Elland Road outfit.
But the Whites would have a challenge on their hands given he’s likely to be in demand.
