Foster seals switch to Birmingham
Birmingham have completed the signing of Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster.
The England international has agreed a three-year contract and although Blues have not disclosed fee, it is reported to be around £6million.
Manager Alex McLeish was looking to strengthen his goalkeeping department having had Joe Hart, selected in Fabio Capello's England squad for the World Cup, on loan from Manchester City this season.
However, with that arrangement unlikely to be repeated in the coming campaign the Birmingham boss has moved to find a replacement.
Foster, 27, found opportunities limited at Old Trafford and fell down the pecking order behind Edwin van der Sar and Tomasz Kuszczak after a number of unconvincing displays.
He made just nine Barclays Premier League starts and his last first-team appearance came on February 23 against West Ham.
