Tottenham ready to make cheeky £6 million bid for England keeper …. and it’s not James

Tottenham are understood to be preparing a £6 million January transfer window bid for Manchester United and England keeper Ben Foster.

The 26-year old has struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford since arriving at the Premier League Champions back in 2005. He was been sent out on loan for two years to Watford, where he impressed, however things really haven’t worked for him at United.

Despite this, he continues to be picked for the England national side, much to the dismay of the player himself. Earlier this week Foster said : “I’m third choice for United yet playing for my country. It’s a weird one and I’ll see what happens.”

We all know Foster is a decent keeper and I think today’s rumour that he may be on his way to White Hart Lane is quite plausible. With Carlo Cudicini likely to be out for quite some time and with Heurelho Gomes continuing to blow hot and cold, a move for Foster really does some to make sense to me.

Foster knows he needs to be playing first team football if he is to be considered for a starting place in next year’s World Cup in South Africa and let’s be fair, with Edwin van der Sar ahead of him at United, he doesn’t really have a chance of playing regularly if he stays where he is now.
