Villa step up bid for Blackburn keeper Friedel

Aston Villa are intensifying their bid for Blackburn Rovers goalkeeper Brad Friedel this week.

The People says Villa boss Martin O'Neill will go in with a new bid for Friedel this week - as Blackburn close on agreeing a price for Tottenham keeper Paul Robinson.

O 'Neill wanted Friedel in time to play in Europe yesterday but he was frustrated because Rovers could not sort out a deal with Spurs.
