Aston Villa sign keeper Marshall

Aston Villa have signed goalkeeper Andy Marshall on a one-year deal.

The 34-year-old former England Under-21 international was a free agent having seen his contract with Coca-Cola Championship side Coventry end at the end of last season.

Marshall, who has also played for Ipswich and Millwall, will provide back-up to first choice Brad Friedel and number two Brad Guzan with the Premier League club.
