Manchester United has rejected a bid for goalkeeper Ben Foster from Tottenham Hotspur, according to reports today. Foster, 26, is out of the first team picture at Old Trafford following a series of unconvincing displays this season. Sky Sports reports that the London club’s bid of £4 million has not been accepted by the Old Trafford board.
Sir Alex Ferguson placed faith in the England international following Edwin van der Sar’s pre-season injury but Foster eventually lost his place to Polish stopper Tomasz Kuszczak and failed to make the bench for United’s home tie with Burnley at the weekend.
The former-Stoke City ‘keeper, signed in 2005 for around £1 million, is widely believed available for transfer with Ferguson seeking alternatives in the summer.
United has said that it will not allow Foster to move on loan, which the club is also rumoured to be interested in Schalke’s Manuel Neuer.
