Villa, Man City move for Blackburn keeper Friedel

Manchester City are moving for Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Brad Friedel.

The Daily Mail says City are ready to make their move for Friedel after being alerted to a £2.5million proposal from Aston Villa.

Martin O'Neill will bid for Blackburn Rovers keeper Friedel, confident he can land him - but that will trigger a reaction from City where manager Mark Hughes is a big fan.

O'Neill's trump card could be American owner Randy Lerner who is also an admirer of his compatriot.
