HULL, England -- American goalkeeper Brad Guzan has joined the second-tier English team Hull on a one-month loan.

Guzan is under contract to the Premier League club Aston Villa but has been unable to oust fellow American Brad Friedel from the starting lineup.

Guzan could debut for Hull in a League Championship match against Leicester on Saturday.

Guzan joined Villa from Chivas USA in August 2008. His only Premier League appearance came as a 64th-minute substitute against Liverpool in March 2009.

Guzan entered after Friedel had been sent off for allowing a penalty kick to be called. Liverpool beat Guzan on the kick to complete a 5-0 victory.
