Foster prepared to leave Man Utd to get regular game time

Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster says he is prepared to leave the club to get regular game time elsewhere.

The 27-year old has struggled in the shadows of Edwin van der sar this season and knows the time is right for him to leave Old Trafford.

"You never want to leave Manchester United," he told the Manchester Evening News. "If you leave this club you are only ever going to go down.

"But I want to be playing football. I am not interested in just hanging around and I would go if the club wanted to sell me.

"If they are happy to accept a bid then you have to read between the lines and realise you are not really needed and move on. It would not be the end of the world for me."
