Another move that had been rumored for awhile is also official. Though he left the club at the end of last season, US National Team goalkeeper Brad Guzan is once again a member of Aston Villa. Guzan has signed a three-year contract and is with the club for the start of their US tour.
"I've watched Brad and some of his games when he was in the team last year and he was excellent," Villa manager Paul Lambert told the club's official site. "I know he's always had that stigma of being the No.2 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."
