No end in sight: Bolton keeper Jussi Jaaskelainen

Bolton goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen believes he can continue playing at the highest level until he is 40.

The Finland international, 34, has three years left on his current Wanderers contract and is hopeful he can earn an extension after that.

'I'm not that old for a Premier League goalkeeper. When this contract finishes I'll be 37 and hopefully I will avoid big injuries so I can't see why I cannot play beyond this contract.

'If you don't look after yourself you are not going to be a successon the field any more because you know others will look afterthemselves.

'You have to keep on top of your game and make sure you do the right recovery.'

Jaaskelainen's 12 years of service with the club is being marked bya testimonial season in aid of three local charities and starts with afriendly against Hibernian at the Reebok tomorrow.
