Ben Foster leaves West Bromwich Albion for Watford

Watford sign English goalkeeper Ben Foster from West Bromwich Albion on a two-year deal with the option of a further 12 months.

Ben Foster has completed his return to former club Watford, joining from relegated West Bromwich Albion on a permanent basis.

The eight-cap England international previously starred for the Hornets across two seasons on loan from Manchester United, being named Player of the Year in the 2006-07 campaign.

Following Albion's demotion to the second tier in May, the 35-year-old has been handed a Premier League lifeline by the Hertfordshire outfit after signing a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

Foster, who has 81 Watford appearances to his name, also has the option to extend his stay at Vicarage Road by a further 12 months.

Orestis Karnezis was first choice between the sticks in the second half of last season, but the Greek keeper returned to Udinese at the end of his loan spell.
