Hull City assistant manager Craig Shakespeare has expressed his delight that Brad Guzan has rejoined the club on an emergency loan deal.
USA international goalkeeper Guzan recently spent two months with the Tigers before returning to parent club Aston Villa.
However, after fellow on-loan keeper Vito Mannone picked up an injury at the weekend, Guzan has headed back to the KC Stadium.
"We had a situation we had to act on and we're delighted to welcome Brad back," said Shakespeare.
"We were a bit reluctant to see him go. It was circumstances, but we are delighted to have him back.
"He's a player that knows the club well, the club know him well and, with Vito's injury, he's a welcome addition at this stage of the season."
Guzan is likely to go straight into the Hull side to face Burnley on Tuesday night as the Championship club wait to learn the extent of Mannone's thigh injury.
Shakespeare added: "It's always worrying when there's a recurrence of an old injury.
"It's in the same area without really pinpointing it until he's had a scan."
