Blackburn goalkeeper Brad Friedel has signed a new deal at Ewood Park.

The American international has established himself as one of the best custodians in The Premiership since his time at Rovers.

Friedel had a year to run on his previous deal, but the new contract will keep him at Rovers until 2008.

The new contract will take Friedel up to the age of 37 and it could see the former Liverpool and Galatasaray man end his career at the Lancashire outfit.

Friedel was delighted to pledge his long-term future to the club.

"We've been speaking since March and I'm delighted," said Friedel.

"I really feel the staff we have now are ambitious and they want to take the club forward."
