Tottenham to target Ben Foster instead of Joe Hart

Tottenham Hotspur have set their sights on a summer move for Ben Foster after being priced out of a deal for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.

The Daily Mirror reports how the West Bromwich Albion stopper has shot to the top of Spurs' summer wish-list, as they prepare for the expected departure of Hugo Lloris to Paris Saint-Germain.

England No.1 Hart is understood to be available for an Etihad Stadium exit, as Manuel Pellegrini considers goalkeeper reinforcements of his own at Manchester City.

However, Tottenham will not be able to meet the Citizens' valuation of Hart and so will turn attention to 31-year-old Foster when the transfer window reopens this summer.

Foster turned in a man-of-the-match display as the Baggies drew 3-3 with Tottenham at The Hawthorns on Saturday, prompting Spurs boss Tim Sherwood to sing the praises of the opposition goalkeeper.

Tottenham's alleged interest in recruiting the West Brom star is understood to stem from director of football Franco Baldini, meaning that Sherwood's anticipated departure from White Hart Lane at the end of the season should have no impact of the prospective Foster deal.
