Manchester United have completed the signing of Stoke City goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Skysports.com broke the news of United's bid for Foster last week and The Red Devils have wasted little time in wrapping up the move.

Sir Alex Ferguson, who was impressed by Foster after seeing him on loan at Wrexham last term, has identified the 22-year-old as a future Old Trafford number one.

Foster has penned a four-year deal with United, but he well be sent out on loan for the forthcoming season.

"Obviously I am very, very delighted," Foster told Sky Sports News.

"The last ten days have been nerve racking, I think even after they made the bid I didn't want to believe it, but I am just delighted to get it over with.

"I met Sir Alex Ferguson and David Gill at the training ground and obviously straight away you could see they had everything you could want.

"I am under no illusions about coming it is going to be easy, and that is why we have agreed that I will go on loan next season.

"We are not sure there are a few clubs and I think it will be known soon."
