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.
