Tottenham Hotspur ready to turn to Ben Foster amidst Hugo Lloris injury

According to the Daily Mirror, Tottenham Hotspur could turn to former Premier League goalkeeper Ben Foster after Hugo Lloris was ruled out for up to eight weeks.

Spurs’ number one goalkeeper Lloris suffered knee ligament damage during Sunday’s 1-0 win against Manchester City.

Ben Foster announced his retirement last September following a four year spell with Watford.

However, the 39-year-old would be available to join Spurs as a free agent on a short-term deal although they would need special dispensation from the Premier League to add Foster to their 25-man squad.

Fraser Forster is currently expected to deputise for the French captain with the north London side facing Leicester City this weekend at the King Power Stadium.

Forster, who was signed by Antonio Conte last summer, is a former England international and the 34-year-old has made one Premier League appearance for Spurs this season which came in a 2-2 draw versus Brentford back in December.
