The Express and Star has reported that Birmingham goalkeeper Ben Foster, who has recently made himself unavailable for international fooball, is wanted by Tottenham Hostspur. The North London outfit are also said to be willing to offer Roman Pavlyuchenko in cash plus player deal but Birmingham are said to be keener on Jermaine Defoe.
Redknapp is believed to have run out of patience with goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes, after recent high profile gaffes against Chelsea and Blackpool. The Spurs manager is has been a long term admirer of the former Manchester United goalkeeper, who has enjoyed an impressive season with the Carling Cup winners, playing in all 36 Premier League games so far, making 157 saves in the process.
The one sticking point for the former Portsmouth manager is Foster’s reluctance leave after finally securing regular first team football after years behind Edwin Van Der Sar at Old Trafford.
