Arsenal have been put on alert for Birmingham goalkeeper Ben Foster, after the star admitted that while he is happy at his current club, any offers for a transfer will be out of his hands.

“I want to stay at Birmingham,” Foster told reporters.

“But if the club agree a fee for any player, in effect it’s out of the player’s hands.


“I really hope it doesn’t come to that. I just hope we go to Tottenham and get the three points.”

Birmingham are currently in danger of being relegated, sitting 17th on the Barclays Premier League table. They are only separated from 18th placed Blackpool by a goal difference of one, and a win at Tottenham is imperative to the side staying out of the drop zone.

Arsenal have been interested in Foster for some time, after a goalkeeping injury crisis occurred at the London club. While Foster would be able to play Champions League if he makes the move to Arsenal, should Birmingham be relegated, the prospect of playing top flight football will suffice as a step up for the England international.

As well as Arsenal, Tottenham and Aston Villa are said to be interested in the 28-year-old.
