Middlesbrough have agreed a deal to sign United States international goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

Guzan, who was with Aston Villa last season, becomes Aitor Karanka's eighth senior signing of the summer and has agreed a two-year deal with the club.

The 31-year-old made 34 appearances for Villa last season and played every game for Jurgen Klinsmann's USA squad in the summer as they reached the Copa America semi-final.

The club says he brings a wealth of Premier League experience to bolster Boro's goalkeeper options further, having spent seven seasons at Villa Park.

David Moyes

  • The 53-year-old Scot has vast experience of the Premier League and earned plaudits for his work during an 11-year stint as Everton manager.
  • In 2013, Moyes was the 'chosen one' for the unenviable task of succeeding Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United. But with the reigning champions sitting seventh in the league, he was shown the exit door at Old Trafford after just 10 months in charge.
  • In a bid to restore his managerial reputation, Moyes went to La Liga with Real Sociedad. However, his tenure in Spain lasted just over a year and he's been out of work since November 2015.
