Bio

Former England international goalkeeper Scott Carson signed for Manchester City on a season-long loan deal on deadline day of the August 2019 transfer window.

The experienced stopper will provide further competition and cover for both Ederson and Claudio Bravo having arrived from Derby County and joins with an impressive CV in tow.

Starting his career at Leeds United, Carson joined Rafael Benitez’ Liverpool in January 2005 and featured for the Anfield side against Juventus in their Champions League quarter-final first leg.

Loan spells at Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton Athletic and Aston Villa soon followed, and his performances earned the goalkeeper both a place in England’s 2006 World Cup squad as well as a permanent move to Tony Mowbray’s West Brom in 2008.

After three successful years at the Baggies, including helping them gain promotion to the Premier League in 2010, Carson swapped the West Midlands for Turkey and moved to Bursaspor in 2011.

His form in the Turkish top flight also saw the stopper earn a further England callup, replacing Joe Hart for the second half of a friendly against Sweden in November 2011.

Carson returned to England in 2013 to link up with Wigan Athletic before making the switch to Derby County two years later.

He featured 30 times last season as the Rams suffered play-off final heartache against Aston Villa.
