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.
The experienced stopper provides further competition and cover for both Ederson and Zack Steffen and is armed 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 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.
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.
Carson was part of the City team to be named Premier League title winners for a third consecutive season in May 2023.
