West Brom Complete Foster Move

West Bromwich Albion have signed Birmingham goalkeeper Ben Foster on loan for the forthcoming season with fellow stopper Boaz Myhill going in the opposite direction to St Andrew's.

Albion boss Roy Hodgson moved for former Manchester United star Foster following the sale of Scott Carson to Turkish club Bursaspor.

Foster, who earlier this year ruled himself out of England duty due to a lack of opportunities, will not return to Birmingham during the season as the deal prevents both clubs from recalling their keepers during the loan.

Hodgson told the club`s website: 'We are very, very happy that the deal to bring Ben from Birmingham has gone through.

'He was always the goalkeeper that we targeted as our number one choice for the season. We are hoping he will be as successful here as he has been with his previous clubs.

Foster joined Birmingham from United last year and played all of the club's 38 Premier League games, but couldn't prevent the Blues being relegated to the
Championship on the final day of the season.

Birmingham have been desperate to off-load some of their high earners to compensate for the financial blow of relegation, while Hong Kong-based owner Carson Yeung has also endured money problems recently.
