Blackburn accept bid for keeper Friedel
Blackburn goalkeeper Brad Friedel looks set to leave Ewood Park after the club accepted a bid from an undisclosed Premier League club.
The club looking to land Friedel are thought to be Aston Villa, who have been pursuing the American veteran for some time.
However Rovers insisted in a statement tonight 'the transfer is conditional to Rovers having a bid for a goalkeeper at another club accepted'.
The identity of that target is unknown, though the Lancastrians have been linked with Tottenham's Paul Robinson recently.
Villa boss Martin O'Neill has been chasing a goalkeeper all summer after allowing loanee Scott Carson and former number one Thomas Sorensen to leave the club.
American Brad Guzan's arrival at Villa Park has been delayed by a work permit.
Friedel, 37, informed Blackburn boss Paul Ince he wanted to leave Ewood Park earlier this month.
