LONDON (AP) - American goalkeeper Brad Friedel has signed up for another season with Premier League club Tottenham at age 41.
Tottenham says Friedel has signed a new contract through 2014. He joined the London club in June 2011.
They agreed to the deal even though Friedel's place in the starting lineup for league matches is no longer guaranteed since Hugo Lloris joined the club from Lyon in August.
Friedel's run of 310 consecutive matches in England's top division, stretching back to May 2004, came to an end in October.
Friedel made 82 appearances for the United States. He played for the Columbus Crew, Galatasaray and Brondby before moving to England in 1997 to join Liverpool. He spent eight years at Blackburn, then three years at Aston Villa before joining Tottenham.
