Birmingham sign Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster
Foster signed a new four-year contract at Manchester United in 2009
Birmingham City have signed goalkeeper Ben Foster from Manchester United on a three-year deal for an undisclosed fee.
The 27-year-old England international fills the gap left by Joe Hart's return to Manchester City after a loan spell.
Blues boss Alex McLeish told the club's website: "We've signed another young hungry goalkeeper who wants to prove himself and live up to his potential."
Foster joined United from Stoke in 2005 and signed an improved four-year contract at Old Trafford in July 2009.
He began last season as United's first choice but errors in the Community Shield against Chelsea as well as the Manchester derby cost him his place.
The Leamington Spa-born shot-stopper played for England as recently as November, against Brazil, but a lack of regular club football saw him dropped and as a result he missed out on a place in the World Cup squad - which includes his Birmingham predecessor Hart.
