Foster did not register a single save during West Brom's 2-2 draw with Sunderland on Saturday.

Foster's clean sheet was gone by the fifth minute of the match after Lee Cattermole banged home the opening score. West Brom held a 2-1 lead after 74 minutes, but Foster was beaten in the 85th minute to grab only the single point.

Tottenham are targeting Foster as a replacement for Hugo Lloris, reports the Mirror.

Lloris is expected to be targeted by Paris St. Germain this summer, which would leave Tottenham searching for a replacement. Both Foster and Manchester City's Joe Hart have been mentioned as potential options, though Foster's price tag would be much more reasonable.

Foster made three saves but allowed three goals during West Brom's 3-3 draw with West Ham on Saturday.

Foster was making just his fifth start this season, and while he made a decent number of saves, he has yet to record a clean sheet this year.

Foster, who made two saves in West Brom's 1-1 draw with Hull City last Saturday, will be in goal for Thursday's Premier League match against Tottenham.

Foster's appearance last Saturday was his first since injuring his ankle back on August 24 against Everton. He was not guaranteed his starting job back after returning, but he seems to be the man in goal for West Brom right now, taking over for Boaz Myhill.

Foster (ankle) is not expected to play Saturday against Cardiff, but could be ready within the next couple of weeks, the Daily Express reports. Manager Steve Clarke said that Foster "is coming along. I know you are all waiting on Foster coming back, but I think this week will be too soon for him."

Boaz Myhill has filled in admirably for Foster, who previously got word that he wouldn't immediately get his starting job back when he returned. For this weekend anyway, that debate won't be had.

Foster (foot) is expected to be available for selection within the next two weeks.

Foster has battled through a stress fracture in his foot since the end of August and has seen Boaz Myhill play well in his absence. Manager Steve Clarke recently said that Foster's return to fitness would not guarantee his return to the starting XI, so fantasy owners are wise to stay up-to-date on his recovery before considering him.

West Brom manager Steve Clarke said that Foster (ankle) is not guaranteed to get his starting job back when he returns from injury, ESPN FC reports.

Foster still has another six weeks before he's expected to return to training, so any talk about his job is premature at this point. Boaz Myhill has filled in while he's been out and Clarke is obviously impressed enough with Myhill's performance that he could let him keep running with the position once Foster returns.

Foster (ankle) has made progress on his injured ankle but will not be available for Saturday's match against Stoke City.

Foster suffered a stress fracture in his right ankle back at the end of August and was expected to be out for up to 12 weeks. While he hasn't reach that mark yet, it does sound like he could be getting closer to a return. Boaz Myhill will continue to fill in for Foster while he's out.
