Brad Friedel has hinted that he could continue playing beyond his current Aston Villa contract.
The American goalkeeper will turn 38 at the end of this season but he persists in impressing in the Premier League.
Friedel - who set an English record of 167 successive league appearances with Saturday's outing at Fulham - has two-and-a-half years to run on his existing deal at Villa Park.
However, the former Liverpool and Blackburn player, who will be 40 when those terms expire, has indicated that he will consider his options when his present agreement comes to an end.
"I've got two-and-a-half years on my contract with Villa," Friedel said in the Daily Express.
"I will serve that out and then see what happens."
Meanwhile, Friedel - who joined Villa in the summer - insists there is no secret to his consistent levels of fitness.
"There is nothing I do particularly to keep myself fit," he added.
"I guess I am less liable to get injured than the guys in the outfield."
