Spurs have Foster bid rejected

Tottenham have had a bid knocked back for Manchester United goalkeeper, Ben Foster.

Spurs have been linked constantly for another ‘keeper since Carlo Cudicini’s road accident in November, and have reportedly turned their attentions to Foster.

Foster has slipped down the pecking order at the Red Devils, with Edwin Van Der Sar first choice and Tomasz Kuszczak the preferred back-up currently.

Foster started off the season playing for United, but fell out of favour after a number of costly errors.

He has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this January, in a bid to catch Fabio Capello’s eye for a World Cup spot.

And Harry Redknapp has enquired into his availability in order to provide some competition for Heurelho Gomes.

However, it seems Alex Ferguson isn’t keen on allowing the England-capped stopper to leave on the cheap, and Tottenham’s bid did not meet their valuation.

Whether Spurs are to up their bid for Foster or turns his attentions back to other targets remains to be seen, but they will have to move fast, with Sunderland also expressing an interest.
