Brad Friedel extends Tottenham contract

FH - Aston Villa 227Really surprised to hear that Brad Friedel has extended his contract with Tottenham Hotspur until 2014.

The 41-year-old Friedel started the season as the first-choice goalkeeper at White Hart Lane but has since lost his place in the side to close-season signing Hugo Lloris, the France international.

Fridel was playing brilliant before he was replaced by Lloris, and I would have thought that a series of Premier League sides would have been interested in his service,s especially considering the dearth of poor goalkeeping in the Premier League these days.

Friedel, who has 82 international caps for the United States, has been playing in England since 1997, when he joined Liverpool. He failed to make a name for himself at Anfield and joined Blackburn Rovers three years later, going on to make 300 appearances for the Ewood Park club.
