Spurs turn to Foster to solve goalkeeper problems

Tottenham are looking to replace out-of-form goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes with Birmingham stopper Ben Foster, according to a report in the Daily Express this morning.

Gomes, 30, has impressed with his shot-stopping since his £9m move from PSV in 2008, but has made high-profile errors, most recently against Real Madrid in the Champions League, and against Chelsea in the league last Saturday.

As such, it is thought manager Harry Redknapp, who was not convinced by the Brazilian when he took over the North London club, is looking for safer hands this Summer.

Foster, 28, who joined Birmingham for £6m from Manchester United in 2007, is thought to be valued at around £10m, although the Express suggest a player swap deal involving David Bentley and Alan Hutton is in the offering.
