Manchester City complete loan signing of Scott Carson

A return to the Premier League for our keeper…

After completing over a century of appearances for Derby County, Scott Carson completes a season-long loan to current Premier League Champions Manchester City.

“It’s an honour to have signed for City on loan,” Carson said. “It’s something I didn’t expect but an opportunity I simply could not turn down. To be part of this squad – the Champions of England – is a dream come true.

“I can’t wait to see Pep’s work on the training field up close. What he has achieved in his management career has been amazing, and it’s every player’s dream to play under him.

“Hopefully, my experience will prove useful as we try and make it three Premier League titles in a row.”

The former England International already has a bulging cv thanks to playing for the likes of Liverpool, Aston Villa, West Brom & Charlton Athletic in England whilst also enjoying a spell at Turkish side Bursaspor.

Scott’s undeniable experience will be a huge addition to Pep Guardiola’s star studded City squad.

City Director of Football, Txiki Begiristain, added: “We’re delighted to be able to recruit Scott into the squad for the coming season.

“We have strength in depth in the goalkeeping department, and the wealth of experience Scott will bring to the squad will be important as we once again look to compete on all fronts.”

This loan is no doubt a great opportunity to add additional silverware to Carson’s current collection.

Good luck Scott and go and Be Exceptional.
