West Bromwich Albion have signed Birmingham goalkeeper Ben Foster on a season-long loan, while Boaz Myhill has moved in the opposite direction.
Foster, 28, arrives at The Hawthorns following
Scott Carson's move to Turkish side Bursaspor.
"We are very, very happy that the deal to bring Ben from Birmingham has gone through," said Albion boss Roy Hodgson.
Myhill, 28, joined West Brom from Hull City in July 2010 and played 11 games for the Baggies last season.
Foster joined Birmingham from Manchester United for £6m last summer and helped
Blues win the Carling Cup
- but was unable to stop them being relegated from the Premier League.
He could make his Baggies debut in Saturday's pre-season clash at Bristol City.
- Started his career in non-league at Racing Club Warwick in 2000
- Joined Stoke City a year later but did not make a first-team appearance
- Was signed by Manchester United for £1m in July 2005 at the age of 22
- Spent the next two seasons on loan at Watford
- Left United for Birmingham in May 2010 having made 12 appearances for the Old Trafford club
- Has five England caps
Hodgson added: "He was always the goalkeeper that we targeted as our number one choice for the season and we are hoping he will be as successful here as he has been with his previous clubs.
"We are confident Ben is the goalkeeper we need to help us enjoy a successful season in the Premier League."
Foster started all 38 of Birmingham's Premier League games last season and was named man of the match as he helped City clinch their first major trophy in 48 years by beating Arsenal 2-1 at Wembley.
He has five England caps but
in May said he was putting his international ambitions on hold
in a bid to prolong his club career.
