Ben Foster extends contract at United

Ben Foster in action

Manchester United have extended the contract of England international Ben Foster by four years.

The player who is on the verge of a return after undergoing thumb surgery has also signed the contract for an extension which would keep him with the club until 2013.

He is seen as the one to replace Van der Sar, when the Dutchman hangs up his gloves.

He joined United in 2005 from Stoke and has spent 2 seasons on loan to Watford making 73 appearances in the process.

Foster told the official website:
I'm really happy to commit my future to the club.

The team spirit here is fantastic and working alongside Edwin and Tomasz (Kuszczak) has been a great influence on my career.

Manager, Sir Alex Ferguson was also delighted with the move :
We are delighted that Ben has signed a new four-year deal.

Ben is seen as one of the best young goalkeepers in England and we genuinely see him as a successor to Edwin Van Der Sar.
