West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke feels they'll benefit from Ben Foster ending his England exile.

The chance to play in the World Cup will inspire the goalkeeper, says Clarke.

"I think he will benefit from the fact he wants to go and represent his country at the World Cup next year," said the Scot.

"He needs to have a good season. If Ben's ambition is to play for England in the World Cup 2014 in Brazil then West Brom can only benefit from that."
