St Andrew’s shot-stopper on his way to White Hart Lane as Gomes runs out of lives.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp is lining up a sensational bid for Birmingham City goalkeeper Ben Foster to replace PSV bound Heurelho Gomes.
The Spurs boss has finally run out of patience with his Brazilian shot-stopper who has made a series of high profile errors during his career in North London.
After his latest blunders against Real Madrid, Chelsea and Blackpool, Gomes lost his place in the team to reserve keeper Carlo Cudicini until the end of the season.
The 30-year-old is the subject of interest from his former club PSV Eindhoven but a fee is yet to be agreed between the two sides.
Redknapp will move quickly to sign Foster who impressed in his first season with Birmingham despite it ending in relegation.
He was crowned the Blues’ player of the season and named man of the match for his display in the Carling Cup final win over Arsenal.
Cash-strapped Birmingham are looking to sell Foster in order to reduce the wage bill. A bid of around £7million will enough to secure the 28-year-old’s signature.
