Birmingham City eyeing move for former Swindon goalkeeper



Birmingham City manager Gary Rowett could be set to swoop for former Swindon Town goalkeeper Wes Foderingham, according to the Birmingham Mail.

Foderingham is attracting interest from a number of clubs

Foderingham is attracting interest from a number of clubs

Foderingham was released by the Robins at the end of the season following three years at the club, during which time he amassed over 190 appearances.

The 24-year-old left the County Ground in search of Championship football, after Swindon missed out on promotion from League One following a 4-0 Wembley thrashing by Preston.

Birmingham are in desperate need of a goalkeeper, following the release of Colin Doyle and Darren Randolph’s move to Premier League West Ham.

However, the Blues may face competition from Reading, after their first-choice ‘keeper Adam Federici also made the move to the top tier with Bournemouth.

Should Foderingham decide not to make the move to St Andrew’s, manager Gary Rowett will not be short of goalkeeping options – with ex-Manchester United back-up Ben Amos and former Wigan shot-stopper Ali Al-Habsi both available, whilst Tomasz Kuszczak is yet to commit his future to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Leicester City’s long-serving ‘keeper Conrad Logan could also be a contender, following his release by the Foxes.
