But stopper not expecting big transfers

Ben Foster reckons Albion will bring in a number of players this season to complement the existing talent within the squad.

The England international believes head coach Steve Clarke may look to bring in up to five new faces this summer but doesn’t expect Albion to break the bank.

Albion will benefit from a new Premier League deal which will see revenue streams increase. However, Foster doesn’t believe all of this will be spent on summer recruits.

“There’s going to be a lot more money being pumped into the Premier League next season but you don’t want to go crazy,” he said.

“You don’t want to add too many players because you might upset the good balance that we’ve got going at the minute.

“I’m sure the gaffer will be sensible and maybe add three, four or five faces.

“It’s up to the manager whether or not he wants to add to the squad and, if he does, what sort of players he wants to bring in.

“I’m sure we’ll roll with that because we trust him.

“The players we brought in earlier in the season have been good acquisitions.

“We trust him to do the same again next season.”
