Foster joins Birmingham for undisclosed fee

Manchester United keeper Birmingham City have completed the signing of Ben Foster for an undisclosed fee from Old Trafford.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper has penned a three-year deal at St Andrews.

Blues boss Alex McLeish moved for the England international after Manchester City refused to consider the prospect of selling Joe Hart.

Having missed out on the opportunity to bring him on board on a permanent basis, McLeish has wasted no time in finding a replacement.

With Foster having found first-team opportunities difficult to come by at Old Trafford, he was only too happy to discuss a move to the Midlands.
