Several sites in America reported over the extended weekend that the deal for Brad Friedel had already gone through.
While there was no official word over here, sources in the US were claiming that a two year contract had already signed. With no word from Tottenham this morning, rumours continued and some names both old and new have emerged in connection with the goalkeeping ‘vacancy’ at White Hart Lane.
Shay Given is the ‘old’ link and Tottenham are supposedly making enquiries after reports that City will do business with us (perhaps we’re the only club that would take Craig Bellamy). There is an interesting new name however, in Fernando Muslera, a 25-year old Uruguayan who has been with Lazio for the last four seasons.
Muslera has played 14 times for his country but is out of favour with his home club. Whichever report you believe, it’s starting to look as if a new goalkeeper could be our first major transfer deal of the summer.
