Watford have agreed a £4million fee with West Bromwich Albion for goalkeeper Ben Foster.

However, once it became apparent this summer that Foster would be on his way, Albion moved for his replacement, bringing in Sam Johnstone from Manchester United for an initial £6.5million.

West Brom announced they signed Johnstone to a four-year contract earlier on Tuesday but did not disclose details of the transfer. Foster is known to be keen on a return to the Premier League after West Brom were relegated to the Championship last season and Watford are looking to bolster their options in goal as current first choice keeper, Heurelho Gomes, is 37 years old now and missed a large chunk of the last campaign through injury. I've spoken to a lot of people about the club and heard nothing but good things.

Grant made five appearances for Stoke in all competitions last season as understudy to Jack Butland.

"It's good to get through the door".

Chestnut, Sudo defend hot dog eating titles
This year, the insatiable Joey "Jaws" Chestnut ate 72 hot dogs (buns and all) in just 10 minutes, breaking his own world record. He borrowed 300 dollars from his friends Jimmy Durante and Eddie Cantor so he could open a hot dog shop.

Johnstone's arrival could hasten the departure of another ex-United goalkeeper, Ben Foster.

He played a total of 223 games for the club, winning Supporters' Player of the Year three times and Players' Player of the Year twice during a seven-season stay at The Hawthorns.

Grant told ManUtd.com after signing: "Moving to Manchester United has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember".

"Now it's time to settle down and take my game up to the next level which I believe I can do here".

The 25 year old has had numerous loans in the Championship, including spells at Aston Villa, Preston North End, and Doncaster Rovers, but failed to make a Premier League appearance for United.
