Brad Guzan plans to quit Aston Villa at the end of the season.

The Sunday Mirror says Guzan, 27, is out of ­contract at the end of the season, and although he has been offered fresh terms, he is fed up of playing back-up to Shay Given.

Villa manager Alex McLeish said: "We made the offer and we respect that Brad needs time to mull it over. I understand the dilemma he is facing.

"But at the same time it is not like he is second-in-command to Joe Hart, who is only 24. Shay is 35."
