Hull City are hopeful of extending the loan deal of Aston Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan.

The 26-year-old's current spell ends at the end of January, but there is an option to extend it by an extra month.

Tigers manager Nigel Pearson told BBC Radio Humberside: "It would be good to [extend Guzan's loan deal] as he's been a real positive for us.

"He's been very positive since he's been here, and I'm very pleased with his contribution."

The United States international was signed as a replacement for fellow loanee Vito Mannone, who returned to parent club Arsenal with a thigh injury.

Mannone, an Italy Under-21 international, has since returned to the KC Stadium and is close to regaining full fitness.

Pearson said of Mannone's ongoing recovery: "He's progressing very well and is doing his rehab with us which he's doing very, very well with. He's probably two to three weeks away."
