Bag­gies fight to keep Ben

Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY MARCH 15 -

WEST BROM goal­keep­ing coach Dean Kiely ad­mits Ben Foster’s Hawthorns fu­ture is out of their hands.

Foster, on loan from Birm­ing­ham, has starred for the Bag­gies but is due to re­turn in the sum­mer.

Man­ager Roy Hodg­son wants to sign Foster per­ma­nently but can’t stop the Blues hang­ing onto him if they go up.

“Peo­ple all say to me, ‘make sure we sign Ben Foster’,” said Kiely.

“I would love him to be our goal­keeper for the next three or four years.

“But he’s a Birm­ing­ham player and his fu­ture will be de­cided by fac­tors that are out of our con­trol.”
