Valued by all...

The former England international goalkeeper signed a one-year contract extension with the Club in May 2023, keeping him at the club until the summer of 2024. 

Former England international goalkeeper Scott Carson signed another season-long loan deal with Manchester City in September 2020, having originally arrived on a season-long loan deal on deadline day of the August 2019 transfer window.

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 call-up, 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 in the 2018/19 season as the Rams suffered play-off final heartache against Aston Villa.

Carson has subsequently brought his experience and knowledge to bear in City’s goalkeeping department since he initially joined on loan in August 2019 followed by another season-long loan in September 2020. 

He was handed his City debut away to Newcastle towards the end of the 2020/21 season - and in 2021/22 he came on for Ederson in the 0-0 draw with Sporting Lisbon.

Since then he has continued to be a valued voice and member of Guardiola‘s team and his impressive CV has allowed him to share his expertise with Ederson and Stefan Ortega Moreno throughout the 2022/23 campaign. 

Carson was part of the City team to be named Premier League title winners for a third consecutive season in May 2023 and was also part of the FA Cup winning team in June 2023. 

And to top it off, he was part of Pep Guardiola‘s Treble-winning team after our 1-0 win over Inter in the Champions League final to lift the Champions League trophy for the first time in our history. 

Continuing success into the 2023/24 season, Carson was also part of Guardiola‘s squad who beat Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup on penalties to win the European showpiece for the first time in the Club’s history.
