Jose Mourinho has reportedly pulled the plug on Sam Johnstone’s proposed loan move to Wolverhampton Wanderers due to the club’s treatment of Cameron Borthwick-Jackson.
Sam Johnstone has been tipped with making a switch to Championship level for the remainder of the season to gain further playing time, most recently being linked with Wigan Athletic and Aston Villa.
According to The Telegraph, Wolves were the side most interested in taking the Englishman on board and made a formal approach for his services, but Mourinho rejected the emergency loan offer last Friday.
It is understood United are unhappy with Wolves over the lack of playing time for defender Borthwick-Jackson, who seems certain to return to Old Trafford in January.
Cameron Borthwick-Jackson has made only seven appearances since signing on loan in August and the deal will be cut short in the New Year after he failed to play under new manager Paul Lambert.
And United are so frustrated with Wolves that they blocked the move to sign Johnstone on a week’s loan to solve their goalkeeper shortage.
Lambert, who is seeking a new keeper due to injuries picked up by Andy Lonergan and Carl Ikeme, has yet to play Borthwick-Jackson since taking charge of the second-tier outfit over a month ago.
