Brad Friedel only signed a new contract with Spurs in December – one that will take him through to 2014 and at the time, the move helped to dispel rumours of a January transfer back to Blackburn Rovers. The American international seemed set to see out his contract at the Lane as understudy to Hugo Lloris but there is a rumour today that Brad may be on his way after all.
Tottenham are being widely tipped to make a move for Chievo’s under 21 international Marco Silvestri who has spent the last two seasons on loan at Reggiana and Padova respectively. At 22, Silvestri may be happy to spend time on the bench before he is ready to challenge Hugo for the number one jersey.
The reports subscribe to the theory that Andre Villas-Boas is resigned to losing Friedel this summer but that goes against every suggestion that we heard when the 41 year old signed that contract last year.
