Hornets return for Foster

Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Foster is looking forward to playing regular Premiership football after getting the go-ahead to return to Watford on a year-long loan.
The 23-year-old also spent last season on loan with the Hornets, playing a key role in the club's promotion from the Championship by producing form good enough to see him named on the standby list for England's World Cup squad.
"I was delighted to get the call giving me the all-clear to come down and sign all the paperwork," Foster told the club's official website.
"Now I'm really looking forward to a year in the Premier League with Watford."
Foster had looked set to spend the forthcoming season as Edwin Van der Sar's deputy at Old Trafford, after United allowed Tim Howard to move to Everton.
However, the arrival of Poland international Tomasz Kuszczak from West Brom ensured United had enough cover to allow Foster to continue his development at Watford.
