Kasey Keller is hoping he can secure a further year on his Seattle Sounders contract.

The 40-year old former Tottenham and Fulham gloveman wants his deal to extend into 2011 and says there are ongoing discussions with the club in regards to holding onto the veteran before MLS expands to an 18-team competition when Vancouver and Portland enter the league.

"We've talked about it," Keller said. "We've started talking about it, about extending my contract one more year

“We're trying to get the CBA sorted out right now, make sure things goes off without a hitch this year, and then we should have plenty of time to talk about [his contract] through the season. The way I feel right now about the club and myself and everything, I'd be real surprised if I wasn't playing in 2011."
