Ben Foster: Has revealed he intends to stay at West Brom for the rest of his career
West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster has revealed he wants to stay at the club for the rest of his career.
The 29-year-old spent last season on loan at the Hawthorns from Championship side Birmingham City, winning the supporters' player of the year and the players' player of the year awards.
The former Manchester United man has since made his move permanent, signing a three-year contract last month in a deal worth in the region of £3.5million.
Foster is delighted to have sealed a permanent move to the Baggies and admits he and his family are settled in the area.

The five-cap England international is hopeful that he can spend the rest of his career in the Black Country.
"I hope this will be my last move," he told the Express and Star.
Settled and happy
"I have no interest in moving south or going up north. I'm from the Midlands, my kids are going to be settling into schools soon so we need to get them registered.
"My wife loves the area too. These are things people don't always see things from our point of view - they just see the footballer and no more.
"There is a lot more to us. We are people who have families and it's important they're settled and happy.
"That's a big thing for me, making sure the kids are enrolled in school and happy.
"We are now on the lookout for our final family home."
