West Bromwich Albion goalkeeper Ben Foster is set to join Watford in a £2.5million deal, according to reports.

According to The Telegraph, Foster will undergo a medical at Watford’s  London Colney training ground later this week, with a fee almost agreed between the Hornets and West Brom.

Foster will leave the Hawthorns just days after refusing to travel to Portugal for West Brom’s pre-season training camp, amid the interest from Watford.

Foster will return to Vicarage Road after an 11-year absence, having spent two seasons with the Hertfordshire club on loan from Manchester United.
