New Aston Villa signing Mark Bunn reacts on Twitter after signing for 'big club'

Aston Villa have snapped up goalkeeper Mark Bunn on a free transfer.

Aston Villa completed their third signing of the summer on Thursday, snapping up goalkeeper Mark Bunn on a free transfer.

Having already landed defender Micah Richards and winger Scott Sinclair this summer, manager Tim Sherwood has now moved to bring in competition between the sticks, signing Bunn on a free transfer.

The 30-year-old was released by Norwich City earlier this summer, but will now compete with Brad Guzan for a first team place next season.

After finalising his move to Villa Park, Bunn took to Twitter to discuss his transfer, and admitted that he was 'delighted' to have joined such a big club.

What should Villa fans expect from Bunn?

Bunn's arrival hasn't attracted quite as much attention as Richards or Sinclair, but he could have a valuable role to play in the Villa squad next season.

Guzan needs competition for the goalkeeper spot in Sherwood's side, and whilst the American international is likely to start the season as first choice, Bunn has the experience to not only provide cover, but also push Guzan all the way for a starting role.

On a free transfer, Bunn could be a bargain for Villa - and whilst there are very low expectations surrounding his arrival, this should be a solid signing.
