Ben Foster took great amusement from a new, unexpected team-mate at West Bromwich Albion on Thursday morning.

The Baggies have been one of the more active clubs in the summer transfer window after new manager Alan Irvine signed a total of nine players to bolster their squad.

However, England international Foster may have thought Irvine had dipped into the transfer market for a tenth time this summer when a strange face turned up at the Baggies training ground.

But the former Manchester United shot stopper revealed that a Walsall player had erroneously been brought by taxi to the Premier League club as opposed to the League One side’s training facility.
