Foster signs new Albion contract

Pulis 'delighted' to extend keeper's Hawthorns stay

BEN Foster has helped spread further Christmas cheer at The Hawthorns by today committing his long-term future to Albion.
The Baggies keeper, who recently made his 150th Premier League appearance for Albion, has signed a new two-and-a-half year deal which will keep him with the club until the summer of 2019.
Foster has been ever-present for the club this season and his glittering performances have assisted Tony Pulis’ men in securing eighth-place in the Premier League for Christmas.  
He joined the club on loan from Birmingham City in 2011 before making the move permanent 12 months later.
The 33-year-old has made 161 appearances for the club in all competitions, keeping 41 clean sheets in the process.
“We’re delighted we’ve extended Ben’s contract,” said Head Coach Tony Pulis. “His form this season has been there for all to see and he continues to set the standards at the club all the goalkeepers have to aspire to.”
