Aston Villa are thought to be interested in a move for goalkeeper Ben Foster.
The Lowdown: Foster a free agent
The veteran stopper, who was labelled ‘unbelievable’ by his former manager Nigel Pearson, has made more saves than any other goalkeeper in Premier League history and recently admitted that he would be keen on a move to Villa Park.
Villa have already explored the free-agent market with a move for Boubacar Kamara and are still being linked with Luis Suarez, and Foster appears to be another unattached player of interest to the club.
The Latest: Villa keen on Foster
Spanish outlet Marca shared a Premier League transfer round-up on Wednesday evening, looking at all 20 top-flight clubs.
When it came to Villa, they included Foster among the players of interest alongside Rory Wilson, who looks set to join next month from Rangers.
The Verdict: Is he needed?
Robin Olsen has recently made his loan move to Villa Park permanent to provide cover for first-choice Emiliano Martinez.
Steven Gerrard also has Jed Steer on the books for a further 12 months, so a move for Foster doesn’t seem needed at this moment in time.
Do you want to see Foster at Villa Park?
Yes, get him in!
No, not needed!
Should the rarely-used Steer leave the club on a loan or permanent basis, though, perhaps there could be room for Foster to become the third option for Gerrard, and it looks as if they are keen on a potential move for the 39-year-old.
