Johnstone to Leeds?
Former Sunderland goalkeeper Max Johnstone appears to have joined Championship side Leeds United on trial.
The 20-year-old spent a year at Sunderland before being released in the summer and started for Leeds yesterday in their friendly against Tadcaster Albion as he hopes to earn a contract for the forthcoming season.
Johnstone played the full 90 minutes for the Leeds XI as they ran out 5-1 winners against the Northern League side:

Target training with Bolton
Harry Brockbank was expected to leave troubled Bolton Wanderers this summer, with Jack Ross reportedly keen to bring the defender to the Stadium of Light.
He is out of contract with Bolton this summer and the uncertainty surrounding the club’s future has put discussions over his future on hold, despite manager Phil Parkinson wanting any prospective new owners to tie the defender down to a new contract as a priority.
The Bolton News claim the 20-year-old is keen to stay with the club, has been training with the team over the last couple of weeks and even featured in a behind-closed-doors friendly against Al-Ittihad on Monday afternoon.
Duo find new clubs
Two ex-Sunderland players have been on the move this week, with both Marcos Angeleri and Anthony Stokes finding new clubs.
36-year-old Angeleri has returned to Argentina after a spell in Uruguay with Nacional by signing a one-year deal with Julio Arca’s former club Argentinos Juniors:
