Report: Brad Guzan To Hull City

Look, I'm about to get playing time...

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.

    This is a one month loan deal, right?

    I am surprised Bob Bradley didn’t / hasn’t put pressure on him to get more playing time in order to keep his spot in the national squad. He’s too good not to be a No.1…

    Looks like a good month-long deal. Get some starting time.

    Also some reports of Gooch to FC Zurich, unsure if it is Loan or Sale or real at all.

    Feilhaber looked set to sign with Cruz Azul, but something happened, possibly another offer.

    Jozy I don’t see moving, especially with the injury to Nilmar.

    Am I missing anyone that we have thought to possibly move USMNT-wise?

      Some speculation that Alejandro Bedoya was ready to move on up out of Sweden, and the way he and his agent have been quoted in the press, he’s clearly signaling he’s interested…

        Touched base with Ale this morning, but more in the “have a good new year” mode…he didn’t want to talk football…said it was first time he opened his computer since he came home.

        I’ll catch up with him at the Chile game or after camp for either feedback or reaction on something that happened.

        Ah, yes. Also, Charlie might get some sort of a loan move for playing time as well. That would help him out.

    Vito (not Vita) Mannone was recalled by Arsenal due to injury.
