Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster has insisted that the reports linking him with a move to Tottenham is nothing more than speculation and has revealed that he is keen on remaining with the Hornets.
The Sun reported on Sunday that Tottenham were preparing a surprise move for Foster in the summer.
Foster, who has been the undisputed number one at Vicarage Road will be a free agent in the summer and it was suggested that Jose Mourinho is keen to bring him to North London after being left unconvinced that Paulo Gazzaniga is the best person to compete for the number one shirt.
Lloris returned to action just a few weeks ago after a four-month injury lay off and the Frenchman’s form has been impressive since his return but it was claimed that Mourinho believed Foster will push the Spurs captain for the number one spot.
However, the former Manchester United stopper has revealed that he isn’t looking to leave Watford in the summer.
When asked about the speculation linking him with Spurs, Foster told talkSPORT: “That’s complete paper talk. But, I am out of contract in the summer.
“There’s been nothing yet [a new contract offer from Watford] but it’s not something I’m really thinking about too much.
“It’s the first time in my whole career that I’ve actually been out of contract at the end of the season, and I don’t really know what to make of it.
“I’m enjoying it, not because I’m trying to leave Watford, that’s not even an option and I can categorically say I’ve had no contact form anybody else, but I think it opens your options and gives you a bit of freedom.
“I’m very laid back in generally about stuff, and if I was to start getting annoyed or frustrated about not being offered a new contract it just wouldn’t help, it wouldn’t help me.
“So it is what it is. I’m not trying to leave Watford, I’m very much enjoying my football, honestly – I didn’t’ come in for this!”
Spurs Web Opinion
I believe that Gazzaniga has done well when called upon to deputise for Lloris and I feel fairly confident with him as our number two but unfortunately for the Argentine, I don’t see him ever becoming our undisputed number one.
With Vorm leaving at the end of the season, I would expect us to bring another keeper in. It would make sense for the club to bring in a young keeper who can learn from Hugo and be his long term replacement.
