Blackburn Rovers boss Paul Ince is determined to hold onto goalkeeper Brad Friedel.

Aston Villa and Manchester City have been linked with the American, but Ince says: "When I came to Blackburn, I said I wanted to keep my best players, and Brad Friedel comes into that category. He is one of the best keepers in the Premier League.

"There is no interest from me in Paul Robinson. As far as I am concerned, I want to keep Brad. I do not want to sell Brad, so why should I want Paul Robinson?
