Watford FC transfer news: Hornets complete signing of Ben Foster from West Brom on two-year deal


The goalkeeper spent two seasons on loan at Watford from Manchester United between 2005-07

Watford have secured the signing of goalkeeper Ben Foster from relegated West Bromwich Albion.

Foster thus makes a return to Vicarage Road after spending two seasons on loan at the Hornets from 2005-07 when he was a Manchester United player.

The 35-year-old played a huge part in helping Watford earn promotion to the Premier League in the 2005/06 season but was unable to prevent them from avoiding relegation. He was voted as the club’s standout performer in 2006/07, however.

He moved to Birmingham City in 2010 where he went onto win the League Cup in 2011, but joined the Baggies on loan at the end of the campaign.

Foster signed permanently the following year and went on to make 223 appearances for West Brom but left the club following their relegation from the Premier League last season.
