Loads of Everton fans have been hailing Ben Foster as the Watford ace responded to being linked with a transfer move to the Merseyside club as well as Chelsea in the summer window.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, Foster said:
“Even my kids chuckled, saying dad have you see that, it must be a slow news day, there’s no truth in that!”
Indeed, The Sun reported last month that the 37-year old had emerged as a transfer target for both Carlo Ancelotti’s team and Frank Lampard’s side, and given his age and the pedigree of the two clubs, perhaps this may be seen as a shock even for him.
Does Foster start for Everton?
On the other hand, Foster won the Premier League twice during his spell with Manchester United, has 364 games in the top flight under his belt playing also for Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion, and has also won eight senior caps for the English national team.
These members of the Goodison Park faithful hailed the goalkeeper on Twitter, as they perhaps feel that he could come into the EFC squad to challenge fellow countryman Jordan Pickford in between the sticks:

I’d have Foster any day

Have him all day long.

Would be a fantastic option to be fair.

He’s a good keeper would give serious competition if not take Pickfords place

Suggested this months ago. Available on a free as well, as far as I am aware. Better attitude than Pickford.
