Tottenham boss Martin Jol has revealed his admiration for goalkeeper Ben Foster.
Tottenham boss Martin Jol has revealed he would be keen on signing goalkeeper Ben Foster at some stage in the future.
Paul Robinson has been Tottenham and England's number one for the past two years but Foster has emerged as one of the top keepers in the Premiership this season following a string of impressive performances on loan at Watford.
Both have been selected in the squad for England's upcoming Euro 2008 qualifiers against Israel and Andorra, but Jol has backed Robinson to keep his place.
However, Jol admits he has a lot of admiration for Foster and would love to bring him to White Hart Lane in the next couple of years.
"I feel now that Paul is the number one in England but you have to prove that every game, that is the problem," said the Dutchman.
"Foster is a talent. He's great, I would love to have him in the next couple of years as a second goalkeeper.
"I want to have the best goalkeepers at this club."
Jol believes Robinson has had a fine season despite being criticised for letting in Gary Neville's back-pass against Croatia in October.
"They don't judge him on the good things, but that is football," said Jol.
"When we play well, Paul plays well. He's number one, and he's a great keeper."
