Foster pledges Blues future

Birmingham City goalkeeper Ben Foster has pledged his future to the Blues after reports linking him with a move away from St Andrew's this summer.

The 28-year-old former Manchester United stopper is approaching the end of his first full season with Birmingham since his £4million move from Old Trafford.

He is said to have already caught the attention of yet more potential suitors after a number of fine performances, but moved quickly to refute claims he is looking to move on again at the end of the season.

Foster has been one of the standout performers for Alex McLeish's side in a year that has already seen them clinch the Carling Cup trophy.

And they now look set to confirm their place in the Barclays Premier League for a third consecutive season – testament to the 'never-say-die' attitude ingrained at the club.


"I've loved every minute of this season. The dressing room we've got here and the spirit is fantastic," said Foster.

"I wouldn't want to leave that to be honest with you. I'm back home in the area where I was born.

"I saw (West Brom striker) Peter Odemwingie being interviewed and he said a happy man at home is a happy man on the pitch. I totally agree with it."

Foster's fine form has also seen him regain his place in the England set-up under manager Fabio Capello, with his starring role for Birmingham billing him as the potential long-term answer to the respective goalkeeping 'problems' at both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.

"It is nice to be linked (with other clubs) but it is always the way. You see Heurelho Gomes at Spurs make a mistake on Saturday and Tottenham are going to be linked with 10 keepers today.

"That's the way it is, but I'm happy here."
