Fergie will keep hold of goalkeeping pair

Sir Alex Ferguson will not let either of reserve goalkeepers Tomasz Kuszczak or Ben Foster leave Manchester United on loan this season. With Foster fit again after an ankle injury, it was felt either he or Kuszczak might be set for a temporary move away from Old Trafford with Edwin Van Der Sar firmly established as first-choice.

New Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has been linked with trying to lure Foster to White Hart Lane on a short-term basis but Ferguson has no intention of letting Foster leave.

"There is absolutely no chance of Ben Foster or Tomasz Kuszczak going out on loan," said Ferguson. "We have Tom Heaton on loan at Cardiff at the moment and that is plenty."

Ferguson left Van der Sar out of Wednesday's win against West Ham - on the veteran Dutchman's 38th birthday - and said he plans to rest him at times through the season as he wants Kuszczak and Foster to become established members of the first-team set-up.

"Edwin will be back against Hull tomorrow," said the United boss. "We left him out against West Ham because we are managing him to keep the freshness in him.

"But it is also very important that we give experience to Kuszczak and Foster. "I will be rotating them as the season goes on.

"We need to give them experience but also show we regard them very highly. They are the future."
