Veteran Watford star agrees new two-year Hornets contract

Ben Foster has agreed a new two-year deal with Watford, the Premier League club have announced.

Foster, capped eight times by England, has been an ever-present in the top-flight since rejoining the Hornets ahead of the start of the 2018-19 season.

“Goalkeeper @BenFoster has agreed a new two-year deal with #watfordfc. A @premierleague ever-present this season, the 37-year-old has made nearly 150 appearances in two spells with us,” the club said in a tweet.

The goalkeeper first played for Watford almost 15 years ago when he joined the club as a youngster on loan from Manchester United before moves to Birmingham and then West Brom.

Foster has amassed a total of 147 appearances in a Hornets shirt in all competitions and replaced Brazilian Heurelho Gomes as the club’s number one when he signed for the club two seasons ago.

Gomes, who has been at Watford since 2014, turned 39 in February and is out of contract in the summer.
