Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola has said he wants to sign goalkeeper Scott Carson on a permanent deal from Derby County.
Carson is presently in his second consecutive season on loan at The Etihad from Derby, and to date, has yet to make a competitive appearance for the Premier League giants.
However, despite that, it seems Guardiola has been impressed enough with the 35-year-old, to want to keep him at the club for the foreseeable future.
Speaking on the goalkeeping situation at his club, Guadiola was quoted by The Manchester Evening News as saying: “We have two top keepers and even the fourth one, [James] Trafford, is a guy who is growing really really well. And then we have one player, one ‘keeper that is so important for us, and that is Scott Carson.
“He is like a captain behind the scenes, like Fernandinho. He is not noticed in the papers or on the field because he is the third keeper but in the locker room he is like another captain.
“He is so important and hopefully he can stay longer with us in the next years.”
