Ben Foster wants West Brom stay

West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster has reassured fans he wants to stay with the club next season as they look set to drop down to the Championship.

The Baggies have struggled all campaign and although it’s not mathematically impossible to beat the drop, it is unlikely they will be able to climb out of the bottom three.

West Brom currently sit bottom of the Premier League, 10 points from safety, following Saturday’s 1-1 draw at home to Swansea.

Foster was rarely called into action at the Hawthorns but a late header from Swansea’s Tammy Abraham cancelled out Jay Rodriguez’s second-half strike to deny West Brom only a fourth win of 2017-18.

The club parted company with boss Alan Pardew and it remains unclear which players will also move on in the summer.

Foster, who joined the club from Birmingham in 2012, has turned out 179 times and he looks set to add to that tally next season.

The 35-year-old says his head won’t be turned if he receives an approach from elsewhere.

Foster told the Telegraph: “Even if the worst comes to the worst and we end up in the Championship, I’ll be here. I’ve got no interest in trying to move clubs.”

West Brom are priced at 17.00 to win their next outing when they travel to Manchester United, who can be backed at 1.18, while the draw is available at 7.00.
