Birmingham to close deal today for Man Utd keeper Foster

Birmingham City are expected to complete the £6 million signing of Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster today.

A fee was agreed between the two clubs last week and Foster is expected in the midlands this morning for a medical that will seal his Old Trafford exit.

After five years at United, two of which were spent on loan at Watford, Foster had accepted there was no future for him at the club, especially as Sir Alex Ferguson persuaded Van der Sar to sign another year's contract extension.

As Birmingham needed a keeper once Joe Hart returned to Manchester City following his season-long loan, Blues boss Alex McLeish wasted no time in stepping in to make Foster his first signing of the summer.
