Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Friedel moves to Spurs after his contract was set to expire this month.

The long standing Blackburn goalkeeper joined Villa in 2008 and made 113 appearances. In his stay he broke the league record of consecutive appearances made with 275.

Now 40 years old, he shows no signs of hanging up his boots and could very well become the oldest goalkeeper to play in the Premiership. John Burridge at 43 years, 4 months and 26 days currently holds that record when he came on as a half time substitute for Manchester City v Newcastle United on April 29, 1995.
