Another American to be a Tiger?
Sky Sports–we trust them, not the Daily Mail–says US and Aston Villa keeper to Hull City is just about a done deal. Guzan will be the 2nd USMNTer on Hull City in two years; Jozy Altidore toiled up top for the orange and black last year.
Guzan will also be the 2nd American born player, Boaz Myhill was the other, who has kept the wickets for Hull City in two years. Myhill re-joined the Premiership with a $1.5M move to West Brom upon Hull’s relegation.
The move is a step in the right direction for playing time for Guzan–he’ll immediately become the number #1 as Vita Mannone, on loan from Arsenal, was just recalled to the Emirates mothership. That said I can’t help but wonder if Guzan needs to get out from under the Aston Villa wet blanket instead of a loan.
US fans and Guzan will take what they can get. Oh, and expect Villa to make a move for a keeper in January now because it can’t be graying Brad Friedel or bust if they want to skirt the relegation hammer.
