Andre Villas-Boas insists he has no plans to sell Brad Friedel as he prepares to recall the American for tonight's Europa League decider against Panathinaikos.

Hugo Lloris has started Tottenham's last five games after ousting Friedel from the first team, but the 41-year-old will have a chance to win back his spot on a permanent basis tonight when he lines up against the Greek side.

Friedel's future at White Hart Lane has been in doubt since Tottenham rebuffed an enquiry from his former club Blackburn last month. "I don't know anything about (Blackburn's bid). We are trying to hold on to our best assets and Brad is certainly one of them," Tottenham manager Villas-Boas said.
