Scott Carson has, on the back of two seasons on loan at Manchester City, decided to extend his stay there. So, in jolly summer transfer window news, Carson signs a one-year contract with Manchester City, the reigning Premier League champions.
The 35-year-old goalkeeper joins the best football team of EPL as a free agent after his deal at Derby expired.
The veteran shot-stopper has taken in just one competitive appearance for City since first linking up with them in 2019.
That solitary outing was as the City goalkeeper against Newcastle back in May.
Yet, he remains a reliable back-up option behind Ederson and Zack Steffen.
The 35-year-old has spent two seasons on loan with the Blues and now he will spend one more.
Carson Signs a One-year Contract with Manchester City
Veteran Manchester City goalkeeper and former England international Scott Carson is back for more at the Etihad Stadium.
On linking up with City on a permanent basis, Carson has told the club’s official website: “It’s a pleasure and a privilege to be part of the setup here at City.
“To be around Pep [Guardiola] and his backroom staff is fantastic and I feel I have learnt so much since I joined in 2019.
“The lads made me feel at home straight away and I have loved every second of my two years here.
“To commit for another year was such an easy decision. I want to continue pushing the other goalkeepers we have here and I want to make sure my experience rubs off on them.”
The director of football at Manchester City, Txiki Begiristain, has commented on reaching another agreement with Scott Carson.
After all, the goalkeeper is a man that has four England caps to his name.
Begiristain said about the extension: “Scott brings a wealth of knowledge to the squad.
“He is a former international goalkeeper who has played in lots of big games during a long career.
“We know he is always ready to play, if we need to call upon him.
“The lads love him, and I know his experience has been a huge help to Ederson and Zack Steffen.”
