QPR weighing up £5m summer move

QPR are preparing a £5 million move for Birmingham City goalkeeper Ben Foster, according to The Daily Mail.

The former England international spent all of last season on loan at West Brom, and impressive performances suggested that the stopper would be included in the Three Lions contingent for Euro 2012.

Foster opted to remain unavailable for international consideration, but with his loan at the Hawthorns finished his club future is still up in the air.

Birmingham failed to win promotion back to the Premier League from the Championship, losing out to Blackpool in the playoff semi-finals, and as such a move for Foster seems likely.

It is thought that Mark Hughes is eager to bring on board an experienced and talented goalkeeper for next term, and will tempt the St Andrews club with a £5 million offer.

The Loftus Road club are said to have also considered moves for Tottenham’s Heurelho Gomes, Aston Villa’s Shay Given and Sunderland’s Craig Gordon, but Foster has been deemed the preferred option.

If Foster does make a move to the London club, it is expected that current number one Paddy Kenny will make a switch to Leeds United.
