Friedel agrees move

We are delighted to announce that Brad Friedel has agreed to join the Club.

The former Liverpool and Galatasaray goalkeeper has established himself as one of the Premier League's leading players in his position.

A former United States international who has been selected in three World Cup Finals, Brad made 356 appearances for Blackburn Rovers, scoring once at Charlton Athletic in February 2004, before joining Aston Villa in the summer of 2008. His consistent performances saw him presented with the Barclays Merit Award in December 2008 after breaking the record for consecutive Premier League appearances following his 167th straight game and he has since extended this run to 275.

Manager Harry Redknapp said: "Brad is a top goalkeeper of real quality who has great experience. It is good to have three such experienced top goalkeepers at the Club in Gomes, Carlo and now Brad and it means we have competition for places particularly with the number of games we will hopefully face next year both domestically and in Europe as well."
