New England boss Roy Hodgson has admitted he would consider an international return for West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster.
Foster opted out of making himself available for selection for England 12 months ago after finding opportunities hard to come by under Fabio Capello.
However, Foster could come back into the reckoning under Hodgson, who signed him for West Brom last summer on loan from Birmingham.
Foster has impressed this season at The Hawthorns and Hodgson is not ruling out a return to the international scene for the 29-year-old.
"I'm not really in a position to talk about individual players or the selection of the squad at the moment," admitted Hodgson.
"That's something I need to give consideration to. But Ben Foster will be one of the players under consideration.
"He's always been a good goalkeeper and since we've worked with him at West Brom, we've definitely seen a spiralling of his performances. It was a nervous beginning and he conceded one or two goals where he might have done better.
"But in the latter half of this season he's got stronger."
Hodgson will take charge of Albion's final two games of the campaign against Bolton and Arsenal before preparing England for Euro 2012, and the 64-year-old hopes Baggies supporters understand his decision to quit after 15 months for the England post.
"It's been a magnificent time at Albion," added Hodgson. "I've been made to feel so welcome by the fans and players. It's been a marvellous time.
"But the England national job is something quite different. I hope everyone understands that it was an opportunity I felt obliged to accept."
