Hodgson wants Foster for keeps

Published Add your comment

Roy Hodgson wants to keep Ben Foster at West Brom on a permanent basis and also hopes the new England manager will try to persuade him to end his international exile.

Keeper Foster is approaching the end of a season-long loan with the Baggies and has played a key role in establishing them in a healthy mid-table position in the Barclays Premier League. But Hodgson, whose side entertain Newcastle on Sunday, recognises that Foster's parent club, Birmingham, will have the ultimate say on his future.

Hodgson said: "We'd like to keep Ben, for sure. He has done very well and everyone is pleased with him and he seems to enjoy life here."
