West Brom's Foster excited by Anelka arrival

Ben Foster hopes Nicolas Anelka will bring plenty of scoring power to the West Bromwich Albion squad this season.

The veteran French striker recently joined the Baggies on a one-year deal and goalkeeper Foster is looking to see plenty of action up the other end of the pitch from the former Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City ace.

"Nicolas seems a really lovely lad," he told the club's official website. "He's going to be a fantastic addition to the squad.

"We're all looking forward to seeing him in action. I really want to see his butterfly celebration too. I always remember seeing him do that when he scored goals at Chelsea. I want to see him do it plenty of times this season!"
