Goalkeeper Brad Guzan enjoyed a solid 2013-14 season between the sticks - continuing his fine form under Paul Lambert.

This after notching the club's player of the season award during the previous campaign.

Guzan swapped the states for B6 when he joined from Chivas USA in the summer of 2008.

The popular figure became the second American with the name 'Brad' in the Villa squad as understudy to namesake Friedel.

His substitute status didn't last long and his debut came in a League Cup match against Queens Park Rangers a month after his arrival.

Guzan made his European bow in a 1-0 UEFA Cup victory away at Slavia Prague, producing a string of fine saves. T

he stopper was a vital cog when Villa lifted the 2009 Peace Cup in pre-season. He featured in matches against Atlante and Porto and helped his side come out victorious in the final, saving two penalties in a shoot-out win over Juventus.

Although he didn't feature for the opening months of the 2009-10 campaign, his ability to save from 12-yards came to the fore again in a fourth round League Cup tie against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light when he kept out four penalties with the score goalless in regulation time.

With first-team opportunities limited due to the signing of Shay Given, Guzan spent two short loan spells at Hull City between January and April 2011.

After his release in June 2012, he re-signed and was part of the newly appointed Paul Lambert's 25-man touring squad of the United States.

Guzan signed a four-year contract with the club in the summer of 2013.

The highlight of the previous season for Guzan was undoubtedly when he set up Andreas Weimann in a 3-2 win against Manchester City, after which Lambert praised the stopper's distribution technique for goalkicks.

Internationally, Guzan has established himself as second choice to Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard and was part of the 2014 USA World Cup squad in Brazil.

He will be hoping to have another prosperous season in claret and blue.
