“Show himself off”: A pundit asserts Mikey Johnston in the midst of uncertainties surrounding West Brom and Celtic’s transfer.



Kenny Miller thinks that Mikey Johnston, who has been on loan from Celtic, will get “plenty” of interest given his impressive run with West Brom.

Mikey Johnston impresses with West Brom

The Scottish champions loaned Johnston to The Hawthorns late in the winter window; the winger had not been able to make a name for himself at Parkhead.

Johnston has benefited greatly from the move thus far, as he has six goals in 12 appearances for the Baggies to help them tighten their hold on the play-offs.

Mikey Johnston transfer latest

Fans of Liverpool are already debating whether they can sign Johnston long-term due to his performance, but they will need to bargain with Celtic over a price as this was not a clause in the original contract.

The fact that Johnston has a contract that runs until the summer of 2026 puts the Hoops in a strong position, and they will be hoping that his excellent performance keeps pushing up the price.


Kenny Miller has his say on Mikey Johnston’s future

Of course, it can’t be ruled out that Johnston returns to Celtic to play a part moving forward. However, he wasn’t a regular under Brendan Rodgers this season, despite a lack of options out wide.

So, with Celtic expected to bring in at least one new wide man this summer, an exit does feel more likely.

It appears that Mikey Johnston’s loan move to West Bromwich Albion could be pivotal for his future career prospects. While his immediate focus is on helping Albion achieve promotion, former Celtic and Rangers forward Miller suggests that Johnston’s loan spell could be viewed as a stepping stone towards securing a permanent move away from Celtic.

Miller believes that Johnston needed this move to advance his career and suggests that the loan arrangement may be geared towards securing a permanent transfer in the future. Johnston’s performances with West Brom could potentially attract interest from other clubs at a similar level or even higher, allowing him to explore his options and potentially secure a move that aligns with his career ambitions.

Carlos Corberan 2

It seems that Sam Johnstone’s performances have garnered attention and praise, with suggestions that he has proven himself capable at a high level with a top team. Given his age and desire for regular playing time, it’s implied that if West Bromwich Albion doesn’t secure his services permanently in the summer, other clubs will be interested in signing him.

As for the immediate future, Johnstone is expected to continue featuring for Carlos Corberan’s side as they prepare to face Stoke City on Saturday. Despite West Brom’s current position in the playoff battle, there’s acknowledgment of Coventry City’s proximity in the standings, with the Sky Blues posing a threat with a game in hand.
