Guzan out to prove his worth


Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan has admitted he is keeping his options open as he weighs up his next move.

Despite 23 various cup appearances to his name, Guzan only made his full Barclays Premier League debut in Saturday's 2-1 win at Bolton after almost three-and-a-half years at the club. And having been understudy to Brad Friedel, Guzan now finds himself behind Shay Given in the Villa Park pecking order.

Given's hamstring injury means Guzan now has a chance to prove his worth to boss Alex McLeish in what is his most vital season as he only has six months remaining on his current contract, and the 27-year-old told the Birmingham Mail: "I know there are discussions ongoing with my agent so it is a case of seeing what happens."
