Loan option open for Foster

18 Mar 2008 - 08:56:17

Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster still expects to be loaned out for the closing weeks of this season, despite making an impressive debut for the Red Devils in the 1-0 win at Derby County.

The 24-year-old England international only recently completed his recovery from a long-term knee injury, but was called up to face the Rams with Edwin Van der Sar injured and Tomasz Kuszczak suspended.

However, Foster said after his weekend outing: "I've only been back from injury two weeks and I was delighted to get the game, but I'm not looking to overtake the other guys.

"If I was Edwin van der Sar or Tomasz Kuszczak and I was being kept out of the team, I'd be very disappointed.

"I don't expect to be in the team. I may have to go out on loan for the rest of the season to play some games and then maybe next season it will be a different story."

United boss Alex Ferguson was delighted with Foster's display at Pride Park, telling the club's official website: "It was an excellent performance.

"In his debut in a competitive game for United, he showed what England are going to enjoy for the next ten years. I think he'll be England's goalkeeper without question.

"He has outstanding potential and he's young. He's not had a lot of football, but it was really a first-class performance."
