Aston Villa have re-signed veteran goalkeeper Andy Marshall to act as cover for Brad Friedel and Brad Guzan.

The 35-year-old has penned a contract that will keep him at Villa Park until the end of the season.

The former Norwich City, Ipswich Town and Millwall shot-stopper was released by Coventry City at the end of the 2008-09 campaign before starring for Villa's reserves as they won the Barclays Premier Reserve League South title last season.

"It's been in the pipeline for the last three weeks that it potentially could happen," Marshall told Villa's official website."I was released in the summer with the possibility of coming back.

"I am absolutely delighted it has been done and I am very thankful for Kevin MacDonald for bringing me back because I have got a good relationship with Kev.

"I worked very well with him in the reserves with the young lads last season and he sees it as an opportunity to get Elliott (Parish) out on loan and get him some games. There is still the cover having myself here in case anything happens with either of the Brads."
