Tottenham star plays down talk of January move

Brad Friedel - Aston Villa to Tottenham (2011)

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Brad Friedel is happy to stay at White Hart Lane for the foreseeable future despite his game time being limited this season.

Spurs signed highly rated French stopper Hugo Lloris in the summer and the new competition has wasted no time in impressing both Andre Villas-Boas and the Spurs fans with his outstanding individual displays.

Friedel captained the side in the Europa League in midweek and itseems that the majority of his game time will now come in secondary competitions with Lloris keeping goal in the Premier League.

The loan deadline closed for English Football League clubs last week and it was rumoured that Friedel’s former club Blackburn Rovers made a last gasp effort to bring the American back to Ewood Park but were unsuccessful.

Despite these rumours and slipping down the pecking order at Spurs, Friedel is happy to stay in North London as he is concentrating solely on Tottenham.

“I cannot answer questions (about a potential January move),” Friedel told Sky Sports.

“It’s all hypothetical. Right now I am a Tottenham player and I am very happy here.

“I have no idea (about Blackburn’s interest). When I was apparently contemplating doing a medical I was at home having Thanksgiving dinner with my family.

“What happens between club and club a lot of times players don’t know. At the end of the day I am contracted to Tottenham and am concentrating on Tottenham.”
