LONDON: Middlesbrough on Friday announced the arrival of Aston Villa’s United States goalkeeper Brad Guzan, the Premier League newcomers’ eighth new signing of the close season.

Guzan made 34 appearances for relegated Villa last season and played every match in the USA’s run to the Copa America semi-final.

The 31-year-old is due to serve as back-up at Boro to former Barcelona and Spain goalkeeper Victor Valdes, who joined the newly-promoted Premier League side this month.
