QPR to Make £5m Bid for Birmingham Stopper Ben Foster

Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Hughes has made finding a new goalkeeper a priority this summer and it seems he has his sights set on Birmingham stopper Ben Foster. 

 

The former Manchester United keeper spent last season on-loan at West Brom in the Premier League where he once again earned a reputation as one of the most consistent performers in the league. 

 

The Daily Mail has reported that QPR are willing to make an offer of £5million for Foster after weighing up a number of alternative options, believed to include Tottenham's Huerelho Gomes, Aston Villa's Shay Given and Sunderland's Craig Gordon. 

 

Foster will most likely act as a replacement for Paddy Kenny should be decide to join the west London club as the QPR number one has been heavily linked with a move to Leeds United. 

 

Kenny worked with Leeds boss Neil Warnock at QPR and Sheffield United, and it seems as though he could be in a for a third spell working alongside the Yorkshireman. 

 

QPR may also be able to take advantage of the fact that West Brom are currently without a manager so it will be difficult to persuade Foster to return to the Hawthornes.
