Tottenham Hotspur will attempt to snatch goalkeeper Ben Foster from West Bromwich Albion as they look to bring in a replacement for 41-year-old Brad Friedel, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Foster has spent the season on loan at West Brom from Birmingham City but Baggies manager Roy Hodgson is leaving the club to take the vacant England manager’s position, while the Mirror adds that it is unlikely West Brom will be able to afford to sign Foster on a permanent basis. That is despite Foster’s parent club Birmingham City being keen to sell, having been knocked out of the play-offs on Wednesday evening by Blackpool.

Formerly of Manchester United, Foster has been an ever-present in the Premier League this season for West Brom, conceding 49 goals in 37 games thus far. Foster also has five England caps to his name but in May 2011 withdrew himself from the national team set-up in an attempt to reduce the strain on his body.

One of the reasons Foster went to Birmingham from Liverpool was because he hated living away from his family. West Brom are no minnows now, finatially and will do anything to keep Foster who is a potential captain at the club. Spurs can afford big from Europe. They won't be able to convince Foster to move from the Midlands and if your boyscout can't do his own research and instead takes the word of that toilet paper the Mirror then you need new staff. I'll write for you if you want, dump this joker and employ someone who knows something about football. Boing Boing
