Villa keeper Friedel hopes he's joined by Guzan
Friedel is willing to offer his support to his compatriot and would relish the competition.
He said: "It's always good to have competition in every position. I know Brad's a young goalkeeper for the future. He's 23 years of age and hopefully he can get a work permit.
"But hopefully, fingers crossed, he can get it and then it will be a pleasure to work with him."
