Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel is eyeing a return to former club Blackburn Rovers.

The Daly Mal says Friedel is ready to give up his battle with Hugo Lloris to be Tottenham's first-choice goalkeeper and make a dramatic return to Blackburn Rovers.

New Blackburn manager Henning Berg was in negotiations with Spurs on Wednesday over a deal that would see Friedel move back to Ewood Park on loan until January when the transfer would become permanent.

The 41-year-old American is also being offered a coaching role at his old club.
