Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster has offered to donate money to charity to prevent the EFL from removing videos on his Youtube channel.

The 37-year-old began placing a GoPro camera in his net during matches this season to provide behind-the-scenes footage for his channel, The Cycling GK.

The idea behind the channel was to give fans more of an insight into what happens on a matchday while they are unable to attend games due to the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the videos are in breach of the EFL's broadcast regulations and as a result, could be removed.

While the EFL have not yet requested that the videos be taken down, Foster said he is happy to talk to them about possibly coming to an agreement where he donates any money made from the videos to the charity Mind, whose logo appears on EFL clubs' shirts.

“A million views, that kind of works out at £4,000 give or take,” Foster told talkSPORT.

“In my eyes, when I started, making money from it wasn’t even a thing. I am not too fussed about trying to make money from Youtube.

Harrow Times:

“It was just kind of getting the seeds sown for the cycling career after football, that is what it was originally. But it has garnered a lot of views, a lot of interest, a lot of media attention.

"So the £4,000 for example, from a million views, even if it comes to something where me and the EFL come to some sort of agreement where I donate money to Mind.

“Mind is the EFL charity partner for mental health. And if I have to donate money, then brilliant, so be it.

“I think it just needs a bit of a conversation really. Hopefully we can come to some sort of agreement.”

Foster previously told Mail Online that he thought the videos were as successful as they are because of the fact supporters are not permitted to enter stadiums at the moment and that he wanted to provide them with more interaction during such a difficult period.

"Fans are using this as their matchday because they cannot be in the heart of it and this is as close as they have been before," he said.

"We will have to get in touch with the EFL. I hope they don't try to shut it down. I don't see why they would want to. It is a good news story.

"If it was controversial content that would show football in a bad light you would need to be concerned but there is nothing like that. It highlights the game in a very good light."
