USA goalkeeper Brad Guzan says he would still love to join Villa this summer after being refused a work permit last January.
Martin O'Neill had agreed a £2million deal with his club Chivas USA and he hopes the deal will be resurrected as he approaches enough international appearances to be granted a work permit.
Guzan, who played part of the England v USA match at Wembley last night said: 'Hopefully there will be more interest from Aston Villa. When I was there a few months back, it was an absolutely brilliant time - great people, great facilities and I couldn't say one bad thing about the place. I would love to sign for Villa.'
Adding, 'My agent has been handling all the discussions and nothing can really happen until the window opens anyway. I am letting him deal with that and, if something comes about, then great.'
'When I met Martin O'Neill at the end of January he was a fabulous guy, a great person. The entire staff were outstanding. It is about the whole way he carries himself as a manager. To have a guy like Martin O'Neill saying good things about you, it makes you feel good as a player.....The first time I was there I spent 12 hours with the players in the locker room and it was outstanding.' 12 hours, were they being held hostage?!?!?
'Hopefully it all goes well. Hopefully I will be able to sign.'
Cool, a player wanting in, a refreshing change from the recent news!!
