Brad Guzan: Goalkeeper has signed a new contract at Aston Villa after talks with Paul Lambert
USA international goalkeeper Brad Guzan has re-signed for Aston Villa, after initially leaving the club at the end of last season.
The 27-year-old's previous deal expired and he left Villa Park before current boss Paul Lambert arrived.
But after talks with Lambert, Guzan has now put pen-to-paper on a three-year contract.
"I've watched Brad and some of his games when he was in the team last year and he was excellent," said the Villa boss.
"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'll see what happens."
