Ben Foster remains undecided over West Brom future
Tuesday 27 March 2012
West Brom's on-loan goalkeeper Ben Foster wants a quick decision on his long-term future, but is open minded about staying at The Hawthorns or returning to parent club Birmingham.
The former Manchester United player joined Albion following City's relegation from the Barclays Premier League at the end of last season.
He has impressed for the Baggies and would be happy to remain, but insists he would also have no qualms about returning to Blues.
Foster said: "If a decision can be made soon, then fantastic. I've got nothing but good things to say about Birmingham and the same now about West Brom. I've loved my time here and at Birmingham.
"We've obviously got to come to a decision at the end of the season and I think Birmingham will be the ones who make it.
"The Championship season finishes earlier than the Premier League so I'm sure, come the end of that, a decision will be made one way or the other.
"I've made some very good friends here and it's very similar to Birmingham, it's a very homely, family-orientated club. I'm just enjoying playing football with good people."
Foster has enjoyed playing regular first-team football since leaving Old Trafford two years ago, but admits there are more important things in his life.
He said: "I don't get carried away with the whole football thing really. It is a job to me, to be honest.
"I do love playing on a Saturday but it's a job and there are a lot more important things in my life. My family is more important than anything else.
"But even people like my wife will agree, when I'm not playing first-team football I'm like a bear with a sore head and it's not nice. It does affect everything and I'm very happy and settled here."
