Guzan move falls through
Aston Villa have missed out on the signing of Brad Guzan. The American keeper had been chased by Arsenal for some time, but a work permit wasn't offered to the goalie and he will now return to the MLS.
"We've very disappointed with the outcome as we were really looking forward to Brad joining us but unfortunately it wasn't meant to be," Aston Villa manager Martin O'Neill said.
"Although we share in his disappointment at the denial of his British work permit, we know that Brad, like the true professional he is, will continue to work hard to improve every day on and off the field with Chivas USA," Chivas USA coach Preki Radosavljevic said.
