Will Hughes hijack West Brom’s bid for Birmingham City keeper?

Mark Hughes is remaining tight-lipped over reports he is looking to pip West Bromwich Albion to the signing of Birmingham goalkeeper Ben Foster.

The England international is on loan at The Hawthorns and the Baggies are keen to sign him on a permanent basis at the end of the season.

But Hughes has expressed some interest in taking Foster to west London in the summer if QPR stay in the top flight.

Meanwhile, Rangers are one of a number of clubs who have watched Birmingham’s highly-rated young keeper Jack Butland, who was recently linked with a move to Manchester United.

“There’s speculation about players but we’re not thinking in those terms yet,” said Hughes.

“A lot of players’ names get banded about. I can’t confirm or deny anything really. At the moment my focus is on getting the points we need to stay in the Premier League.”
