Friedel extends Blackburn contract

Brad Friedel has extended his contract at Blackburn by a year.

The new deal means the American goalkeeper will stay at Ewood Park until June 2010, completing 10 seasons of service to the Barclays Premier League club.

The 36-year-old, who has started every league fixture in the last four seasons, said: "I'm delighted to have extended the agreement by a further 12 months. It was not a difficult decision to make.

"Blackburn Rovers is home to me. This is my club and I have a special affinity with it."

Friedel, who joined Rovers from Liverpool in 2000, played his 300th league game in English football against Everton at the weekend. He also set a new club record for Premier League appearances against Fulham in November, overtaking former captain Tim Sherwood's total of 235.
