Ben Foster has admitted he would like to stay with West Bromwich Albion beyond this season if it's possible.

The 28-year old goalkeeper, who is on loan from Birmingham City ,has been ever-present for the Baggies so far this campaign and suggests he would be open to a permanent stay at The Hawthorns provided his parent club do not achieve promotion to the top flight.

"I am enjoying it here," Foster told Express & Star. "It was nice to stay in the area and coming to West Brom was a nice way to do that for me.

"As the season has gone on I have enjoyed it more and more. It's such a good club and I have made a lot of new friends and we will just have to see what happens at the end of the season.

"We don't know what's going to happen. West Brom are in a very good position for next season so it's down to Birmingham.

"They're doing very well in the Championship at the moment and going for promotion and I'm sure a decision will be made at the end of the season.

"Should Birmingham get promotion, I'm sure that would change things a bit, but we'll just have to wait and see."
