GUZAN HEADS TO HULL CITY ON LOAN
Guzan will likely earn his first European league start soon
CHAD WINGER - Friday, December 31, 2010
Aston Villa backup Brad Guzan will head east for the next month as the Tigers of Hull City have reached a deal with the Villans.

Guzan, 26, will replace injured Vito Mannone for the Championship team, as the Italian has returned to Arsenal with a thigh problem.

The American, who moved to Villa Park in July 2008, had previously stated interest in a loan deal to get first-team minutes, will now move to KC Stadium, last year's home for Jozy Altidore.

Guzan, despite several FA and League Cup matches for Aston Villa, has only appeared in a single Premiership match, replacing Brad Friedel who was sent off in the 64th minute of a March 2009 contest against Liverpool.
