Aston Villa goalkeeper Shay Given has reaffirmed plans to get a move away in January.

Given, the man Brad Guzan has ousted as Aston Villa’s first choice keeper is hopeful of getting a move in the January transfer window.

“I am disappointed I am not involved but I still have three years left on my contract, and I know I am fortunate to have that security,” said Given, who trains with Guzan and deputy Jed Steer, but is no longer involved on matchdays.

“There’s a lot of good lads out there who haven’t even got a club at the moment. I could still be sitting here this time next year, no change, or something might come up in January.

“When you have played virtually every game throughout your career it is difficult, especially when you think you should still be playing. I will just train hard until January and hope something comes up.”
