According to reports, Foster is set to join the Ligue 1 giants Monaco in January after agreeing to a five-year-deal with the French side.

“I am still an Orlando Pirates player. But it’s God’s will that I am going to Monaco. I just have to take it and follow it. It’s good that SA players are moving to Europe at a younger age,” said Foster at the Discovery Water Sisulu Soccer Challenge launch in Sandton.

Foster hopes to learn from Henry once he joins the French club in January.
