Foderingham set to stay at Swindon
WES Foderingham looks set to remain a Swindon Town player through the January transfer window after Bournemouth ended their interest in the goalkeeper.
The Cherries have been looking for a new full-time stopper for several months but completed their search with the permanent signing of free agent Lee Camp on Friday evening.
Camp has signed a two-and-a-half year contract at Dean Court after impressing during a loan spell at the Dorset club from West Brom and Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe, who has been monitoring Foderingham since the summer, now has no need for a new number one.
The Advertiser understands there has been no other interest of substance in the 22-year-old from across the Football League and Foderingham is now not expected to move on from Swindon this month.
A source close to the player told the Advertiser: “Following Lee Camp signing for Bournemouth, Eddie Howe has ended his interest in Wes.
“It looks like he’ll be staying with Swindon until at least the end of the season.
"January is not a time when managers are usually looking at goalkeepers.”
Foderingham, who joined Town on an initial loan deal from Crystal Palace in October 2011, signed on permanently with Swindon two years ago. He has since made 122 appearances for the Robins, becoming a cult hero at the County Ground in the process.
Bristol City and Brentford both showed an interest in signing Foderingham in the summer but the keeper instead chose to pen a new two-year-deal in Wiltshire.
