Guzan agrees new Villa deal

USA goalkeeper Brad Guzan has re-signed for Aston Villa after agreeing a new three-year contract with the club he left at the end of last season.

Guzan failed to agree terms on a new deal earlier this year but, following a change of manager at Villa Park, the 27-year-old has agreed to remain at the Midlands club.

He will join his Villa Park team-mates on their three-match tour of the United States after being named in boss Paul Lambert's 25-man squad.

Guzan joined Villa from Chivas in 2008 and has been second choice for the majority of his time at Villa Park.

But the American impressed while deputising for Shay Given when the Republic of Ireland international was injured last season, and Lambert expects him to put pressure on Villa's No.1.

"I've watched Brad in some of his games when he was in the team last year and he was excellent," Lambert told the club's official website.

"I know he's always had that stigma of being the number two behind some really good goalkeepers here.

"But when you come back at the start of the season nobody knows what's going to happen and it depends on whoever does well.

"Brad played very well the time he was in, and maybe he found himself a bit unlucky to be back out.

"The club needs two or three good goalkeepers, so when Shay comes back from the Euros it will be a big bonus, and we will see what happens."
