EPL’s Aston Villa upped the ante in the race to secure the rgiths to US National Team goalie Brad Guzan. The offer is reported to be close to $4million according to ESPNsoccernet. That means he’ll challenge Dempsey’s $4million transfer for an MLS record. Good move for Brad at either place. Celtic is always in Champions League action and Villa is currently in 5th place in the Prem, which I *think* means they’ll be in CL next season.
