Foster waits on United offer

Manchester United are yet to offer goalkeeper Ben Foster a new contract, his agent has confirmed. Widespread reports had claimed that United had offered Foster a new long-term contract on the back of his Man of the Match performance in the Carling Cup final win over Spurs. Foster saved Jamie O'Hara's spot-kick as United lifted the trophy after a 4-1 success on penalties following 120 goalless minutes. However, his representative Lee Payne has confirmed that the England international is yet to talk fresh terms with the Premier League and European champions. Foster's current deal is due to expire next year. "Reports suggesting Ben has agreed a new deal are not true," Payne told "Ben is very happy at the moment, but as yet we have not held any talks with United." Following United's Carling Cup triumph, Sir Alex Ferguson was quick to pay tribute to Foster and insisted he is set to become England's No.1
