LONDON, July 6 (Reuters) - U.S. international goalkeeper Brad Guzan has agreed a new four-year deal with Aston Villa that will keep him at the Premier League club to the end of the 2016/17 season, Villa said on Saturday.

The 26-year-old, who has become Villa’s first-choice keeper, returned for pre-season training on Saturday along with the club’s other internationals before they fly to a camp in Germany.

“Hopefully now I‘m coming in to some good years ahead and to be able to do that at Villa is exciting.”

Villa finished 15th last season in the 20-team league, five points above the drop zone. (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Clare Fallon)
