According to this source, Harry Redknapp badly wants a new keeper and is apparently ready to splash the cash in order to get what he wants!
The England international hopeful is behind Edwin van der Sar in the pecking order at Manchester United, with Tomasz Kuszczak also challenging him for the jersey when the Dutchman is out.
Although Foster has recently stated his desire to remain at Old Trafford and fight for his place, he knows he needs regular first team football if he is to become Fabio Capello’s number one for England.
Harry Redknapp is desperate to land a new goalkeeper in the New Year, something which has shot to the top of his priority list after seeing Heurelho Gomes’s howler at Fulham in the 2-1 defeat.
Shay Given is his first target but he has so far received little encouragement from Newcastle United, so he will instead tempt the champions with a £10million bid for 25-year-old Foster. (fansfc.com)
Now that is a large sum of money for a player who has just 30 Premier League appearances to his name, but at the same time, I think it’s clear to see that Foster is an England international with a bright future. There are a few keepers already linked with a move to White Hart Lane, but it does seem that this could be one who could be persuaded to join the club, given that he is currently third choice at Man United. Do Tottenham fans have any other favourites they would like to replace the bumbling Brazilian?
