Former Liverpool and Poland goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek has penned a new contract with La Liga giants Real Madrid. The gloveman, who won the Champions League final with the Merseysiders in 2005, has signed a new one-year deal after his existing terms were set to expire later this month. Dudek, 37, joined the Santiago Bernabeu-based outfit in 2007 from the Premier League side and he has remained as an understudy to first-choice star Iker Casillas. A statement on the club's official website read: "Real Madrid and Jerzy Dudek have reached an agreement for the player to remain at the club until June 2011."
