Cardiff City will rival Aston Villa for the signing of Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone, according to a report.
The 25-year-old has impressed on loan with the Villans this term, playing a key part in their run to next week's playoff final.
Villa boss Steve Bruce admitted earlier in the season that he wants to sign Johnstone on a permanent basis in the summer, regardless of what division his side are in.
United reportedly have the option to trigger a one-year extension in the Englishman's contract, ensuring that they will generate a fee for his services.
Etheridge featured in all but one of the Bluebirds' 46 league matches in their promotion-winning campaign, keeping 19 clean sheets.
