Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has decided against allowing goalkeeper Ben Foster to move away on-loan.

The once-capped England keeper asked if he could drop down a level and sign on loan for the rest of the season, but Fergie has refused despite Edwin van der Sar and Tomasz Kuzszack being fit. Foster had been given the go-ahead to leave before making a shock debut at Derby County but now Fergie has told him to wait for his chance.
