Langfield signs new Aberdeen deal

Jamie Langfield has signed a new contract with Aberdeen.

The 32-year old goalkeeper, who has been at Pittodrie Stadium since 2005, has decided to extend his stay by a further two years.

Langfield, whose contract was set to expire in the summer, has worked his way back into Craig Brown's first team after undergoing surgery for brain seizures about a year ago but will compete with Jason Brown for the number one shirt next season which he is excited about.

"The decision to sign the new contract was based on the fact I wanted to play," he told RedTV.

"I had a chat with the manager. He said it would be a level playing field next season, myself against Jason. There will not be a number one. It will be two guys going at it. I am always up for a challenge. I gave myself a challenge this year!

"I could have gambled and left and maybe tried my luck elsewhere. There was quite a bit of interest.

"Hopefully it is a new era for myself. I want to put this season behind me. I want people to start talking about me as a goalkeeper again and not my illness.

"I have been here seven years now. At the end of the contract it will be nine. I am an Aberdeen fan now. It is the longest I have ever been anywhere. I would love to finish my career here. It is a wonderful place to be with wonderful people."
