Guzan believes the 32-year-old playmaker can be Villa‚Äôs ‚Äėnumber 10‚Äô and dazzle defences to help set up opportunities for Christian Benteke, Gabby Agbonlahor, Andi Wiemann and Libor Kozak next season.
‚ÄúI‚Äôm really excited by Joe‚Äôs arrival,‚ÄĚ said Guzan of the former West Ham, Chelsea and England midfielder.
‚ÄúThe gaffer has spoken before of wanting a No.10 and Joe undoubtedly has the ability to play that vital penetrating pass.
‚ÄúEveryone knows he can open defences up and he‚Äôll definitely ask questions of the opposition.
‚ÄúHe brings flair to the team and his ability is there for all to see so he‚Äôll be a big player for us.
‚ÄúHis ability to open up defences will be huge because we can get behind defenders with Christian, Andi, Libor and Gabby.
‚ÄúNow to be able to link the midfielders and forwards, it will be great.‚ÄĚ
