American custodian linked with Ewood Park move.
Brad Friedel is ready to give up his battle with Hugo Lloris to be Tottenham’s first-choice goalkeeper and make a dramatic return to Blackburn Rovers.
New Blackburn manager Henning Berg was in negotiations with Spurs on Wednesday over a deal that would see Friedel move back to Ewood Park on loan until January when the transfer would become permanent.

Andre Villas-Boas has confused many with his initial reluctance to play new signing Hugo Lloris but having selected the French international skipper for the North London derby it would appear that the White Hart Lane boss will look to switch tack and drop the American veteran to the bench on a lengthy basis, therefore a possible move back to Ewood Park may well suit the 41 year old custodian.
The Championship side are also reportedly ready to offer a coaching role to their former keeper who spent eight years at the club prior to his move to Aston Villa having amassed a total of 356 appearances for the Lancashire club.
