Brad Friedel: Tottenham goalkeeper has no plans over when to call it quits

The 41-year-old, who has lost his No.1 shirt to Hugo Lloris this season, still has a year to run on his Spurs contract.

Friedel is unsure if his current contract will be his last in football, but he believes he is good enough to prolong his career.

"For me age is just a number," said Friedel. "I would never have signed my last contract if I didn't think I could still perform

"I feel as good as I ever have done.

"Obviously with every athlete in every sport there will come a time when you will have to stop.

"I don't know. We will see if this will be my last contract. Next year could be brick wall time. You never know.

"If I feel the same way now in a year's time, I will revisit the situation.

"But for now I feel the same after matches and heavy workouts as I did when I was 24."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
