Watford FC have announced that goalkeeper Ben Foster has signed a two-year contract extension with the club, in a deal which will see him reach the veteran age of 39.

Foster has made nearly 150 appearances for the club in two different spells and has been one of the Hornets’ stand-out players this season.

In a statement released by the club, Foster said: “I know it takes me to 39, but I know I’m good for it. I am feeling as good as I’ve ever done. Football seems easy and natural for me and Watford just works for me.

“I see young kids coming through. They run off adrenaline, everything is new and shiny to them. If they start having setbacks, they need support. I want to help as many other players as I can.”

The former Manchester United and Birmingham goalkeeper signed for Watford back in 2018 after he joined from West Bromwich Albion, where had the longest spell of his career.

The ex-England international, who has eight caps for his country, also played on-loan at the Hornets between 2005 and 2007, and then went on to win three League Cups with two at Manchester United and the other at Birmingham.

Watford have also confirmed the contract extensions of Jose Holebas, Heurelho Gomes and Adrian Mariappa until at least the end of the 2019/20 campaign which restarts next week.
