Ben Foster wanted by Watford in £10m deal, West Bromwich Albion fans react

West Bromwich Albion always had to expect that some of their first-team players would be poached by other clubs.

Suffering relegation to the Championship punched a dent in their status, and now their number one goalkeeper Ben Foster is believed to be attracting attention.

On Saturday, The Sun reported that Watford are planning to launch a £10m bid for the shot-stopper, who has earned eight international caps for England in his career.

Foster is already familiar with the Hornets having spent two loan spells at the club between 2005 and 2007.

The 35-year-old moved to The Hawthorns in 2012 and has been the Baggies’ number one, but the club’s drop from the Premier League may have forced him to consider his options.

While West Brom may not have top-flight football to offer, they can ensure that Foster will be first choice at The Hawthorns.

After allowing Boaz Myhill to leave, it would be a disaster to lose Foster, but some fans think that the report is pure speculation.
