Man City Sign Ederson Backup

Published

on

Former England goalkeeper Scott Carson is having a medical at Manchester City ahead of a season-long loan from Derby.

The 33-year-old will act as cover for first-choice Ederson and second-choice Claudio Bravo with the Premier League champions not expected to pay any loan fee, just take over the player’s wages.

Carson has top-flight experience with Liverpool, Charlton, and Aston Villa, and has four England caps.

He also spent two years in Turkey with Bursaspor between 2011 and 2013 and it is his varied experience that has attracted City to make a move in this window.

City has already loaned out Aro Muric this season, while Zack Steffen has arrived from Columbus Crew in America but will spend the season in the Bundesliga with Fortuna Dusseldorf.
