Tottenham fail in bid to get Ben Foster out of retirement as Prem refuse to give special permission after Lloris injury | The Sun

TOTTENHAM’S plans to bring Ben Foster out of retirement and back to the Premier League have been scuppered.

Spurs are on the lookout for a goalkeeper following Huge Lloris' injury.

The Tottenham No1 is expected to be out for around two months after suffering knee ligament damage.

Spurs can only sign free agents to replace the Frenchman after the transfer window closed last week.

And one target they had in mind was former Manchester United keeper Foster.

Foster, 39, retired and is a free agent after leaving Watford last summer.

However, Spurs would have needed special dispensation from the Premier League to sign him up.

But the Daily Mail have claimed that will be denied by Prem chiefs under current rules.

Former England international Foster turned his hand to Youtube in 2020 and regularly vlogged his experiences playing for Watford.

He is known as the "cycling goalkeeper" on the platform and has 1.2million subscribers.

Foster has filmed behind-the-scenes footage on matchday and even filmed a charity match by attaching a camera to his gloves.

Meanwhile, Spurs boss Antonio Conte has been left with just one senior goalie – Fraser Forster – to select in his captain’s absence.

The 34-year-old former Southampton and Celtic ace made just his second top-flight start for the club since his arrival last summer at Leicester on Saturday but was unable to stop his side suffering a 4-1 thrashing.

Rookie Brandon Austin, 24, was on the bench at the King Power Stadium but he is yet to make a senior appearance for the club.
