Tottenham to Make Move for Birmingham City Keeper Ben Foster

Error prone White Hart Lane keeper set to be replaced.

Harry Redknapp is ready to move for Ben Foster to replace blunder keeper Heurelho Gomes.

Tottenham boss Redknapp is a big admirer of the Birmingham keeper and is now keeping close tabs on him.

Redknapp wants to shake up his keepers this summer and, despite publicly backing Gomes, has lost patience with the Brazilian making so many mistakes.

Error-prone Gomes cost Tottenham valuable points with a high-profile gaffe against Chelsea 10 days ago and by conceding a penalty against Blackpool on Saturday, just moments after pulling off a spectacular save.

West Ham’s Rob Green is set to go to Aston Villa in the summer, but Redknapp believes Foster has more potential.

You can hardly blame Harry Redknapp for looking at potential replacements for Heurelho Gomes who has dropped a series of clangers since his arrival at White Hart Lane in the summer of 2008. The Brazilian appears to have fingers made out of butter and whilst Ben Foster has made high profile errors of his own the England international would appear to be a sensible replacement.

However, having guided Birmingham City to the Europa League there is of course the chance that the former Man United man may be happy to stay at St’ Andrews but that won’t stop Tottenham from trying to persuade the keeper into making the move to North London.
