Birmingham are in need of a new number one as loan-star Joe Hart is returning to Manchester City following his highly successful stint at St Andrews.
Blues boss Alex McLeish failed with his efforts to keep Hart for another 12-months and so turned his attentions to the red-half of Manchester, and has now agreed a deal with United for Foster.
It is understood Birmingham have agreed a fee in the region of £5million and that Foster is now in talks with the club.
England international Foster has seen his chances limited at United this term, which has cost him a place at the World Cup finals.
His agent Lee Payne has confirmed to skysports.com
that his client is in talks with Birmingham.
"We are close to agreeing a deal," he told skysports.com
"The two clubs have agreed a fee and given us permission to talk to Birmingham.
"We fully expect the deal to be completed either this weekend or the start of next week."
