New keeper Guzan sees 'bright future' at Aston Villa

The American keeper had his work permit approved this week.

"Just from seeing the facilities and the vision the club has with Randy Lerner, I figure the future is so bright," the former Chivas USA star told Villa's official website.

"I'm joining a talented group of young guys. It’s going to be training filled with competition day in and day out."

"I am going to go in there and work as hard as I can, learn as much as I can and try to become a better player and help the team in any way I can," Guzan added.

"Whether that is as a No 2 or competing for No 1, I am going to be pushing to make myself better or pushing the person who is playing to play better.

"Clubs with a good atmosphere have positive effects as they have competitive players who are pushing each other to make the team better."
