Wrexham goalkeeper Ben Foster has revealed what he asked for when he was negotiating with the Non-League club.
Foster is hoping his experience can help the club get over the line and gain promotion to the Football League.
Now, he has revealed the demands he made for his contract with the club. You can watch the footage below.
The former Manchester United goalkeeper said: “When it gets to the point of negotiating a contract. Obviously, you’ve got to expect that being non-league, it’s not going to be anywhere near Premier League money or anything like that.
“To be honest, I don’t really need much anyway so the negotiations honestly took about five minutes. It was the easiest conversation in the world.”
Foster continued: “With regards to wages and kind of stuff. It’s a short-term deal, a six-week deal. Wages wise it’s literally peanuts. I said I don’t want much.
“Like pay for my travel, pay for when I need to stay in a hotel. That’s all I really want from it.
“The part of it for me is to try and help the team, get them over the line, get promoted.”
On Monday, in what was an extraordinary top-of-the-table clash against Notts County, Foster made a last-minute save to deny Cedwyn Scott from 12 yards as Wrexham held on for a crucial 3-2 victory.
On the back of the victory, Wrexham now have a three-point lead at the top of the table with four games left to play.
After the match, Foster expressed his delight, he said: “I've never done that before, never saved a penalty last minute to win the game.
“I do owe a lot to Wrexham you know, they gave me the springboard to really start my career.”
He added: “So I do owe them a lot and I wanted to come and help out and I didn't want it to be like a circus and all that you know.
“I wanted to come and I wanted to play some proper football and take it seriously - I'm very competitive anyway.”
Wrexham will be back in action this weekend as they take on Barnet on Saturday afternoon.
