Ben Foster has committed himself to Manchester United after signing a new four year deal with the club.
Despite the fact that his first team opportunities have been limited due to the competition he has faced from Edwin van der Sar and Tomasz Kuszczak, Foster has chosen to stay at Old Trafford saying:
I’m really happy to commit my future to the club.
The team spirit here is fantastic and working along side Edwin and Tomasz has been a great influence on my career.
Foster made just nine appearances for United last term, one of them being a stand out performance in their penalty shoot-out victory over Tottenham in the Carling Cup final.
The goalkeeper joined the club in July 2005 from Stoke but spent two seasons on loan at Watford.
In other transfer news, Chelsea have confirmed the purchase of Yuri Zhirkov from CSKA Moscow on a three year deal.
The 25 year old, who reportedly cost the London club £18 million, passed a medical on Tuesday.
Birmingham have finally completed the signing of Christian Benitez' for an initial £7.7million from Mexican side Santos Laguna. A deal was done earlier this summer but had to be re-negotiated after the player failed a medical.
And it’s understood that Marc-Antoine Fortune could be a Celtic player by the end of Wednesday. Fortune, who spent much of last season on loan at West Brom, has decided to link up again with manager Tony Mowbray who’s now in charge at Parkhead.
