Barca dealing with Copa drama

Stuttgart already eyeing new deal for Lehmann

Stuttgart coach Armin Veh hopes goalkeeper Jens Lehmann will not retire when his contract expires next summer.

The 38-year-old stopper signed a one-year contract when he made a free transfer from Arsenal in June, but Veh hopes he will extend that deal.

"I know that Jens is physically able to play longer and I hope he can reconsider and remain with VfB," Veh told Kicker magazine.

Lehmann will be 40 before the end of next season, but Veh says he has no plans to make any changes in goal as reports surface about interest in Valencia's Timo Hildebrand.

The former Stuttgart keeper appears to have fallen out of favour in Spain and was reportedly close to signing for Hoffenheim on transfer deadline day, but Veh cannot imagine him returning to the club.

"I have Jens Lehmann in goal at the moment and I am not considering Timo Hildebrand," he added.
