Foster Makes Permanent Move To The Baggies

Ben Foster has completed a permanent move to Premier League side West Brom it was announced today.

The 29 year old always looked likely to make a permanent move to the Hawthorns after spending the whole of last season on loan there.

The fee is undisclosed according to the clubs, but there is speculation that Foster has cost the Baggies 4million.

He joins on a contract for three years with a two year option at the end of that period in favour of the club.

A delighted Steve Clarke told the Press Association: 'I think the supporters will be delighted we've been able to keep him on board and make him our player.

'In any league in the world you want a goalkeeper that is going to make match-winning saves, turn draws into wins and defeats into draws.

'A quality goalkeeper is worth 10 or 12 points a season to you - and that's certainly what we think we've got in Ben Foster.'
