Cudicini signs new 1-year contract with Tottenham

Veteran goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini has signed a one-year contract

with Tottenham to extend his stay with the Premier League club

until he is almost 39.

Cudicini started eight matches in this season’s Premier League

and two in the Champions League after recovering from wrist and

pelvis injuries from a November 2009 motorcycle accident.

The son of AC Milan great Fabio Cudicini, the former Chelsea

keeper has played a total of 25 times for Tottenham. He started the

last three matches of the season, helping Spurs finish fifth.

Cudicini has mostly been backup to Heurelho Gomes in his 2 1/2

years with Tottenham but the erratic Brazilian has reportedly

spoken with PSV Eindhoven sporting director Marcel Brands about

returning to the Dutch club.
