Scott Carson Wants Permanent Move

Scott Carson Wants Permanent Move

Liverpool's on loan goalkeeper Scott Carson has said he would 'welcome' a permanent move to Villa Park.

The England U21 international, who is pushing hard for the full England No1 jersey - and lets face it David James is coming to the end of his time and Paul Robinson is simply not good enough, so it shouldn't take too much longer for Carson to get his chance, is also under the impression that there is an arrangement between the two clubs.

Carson said: 'I think something has been agreed whereby, if everyone is happy, it could be made a permanent transfer. That's obviously up to the boss but it's something I would welcome. I want to establish myself as a number one and preferably I would like to do it here. I've been out on loan a lot over the past couple of seasons and it's not easy when you keep moving up and down the country. It would be nice to settle at a club that I like and where the fans like me.'

Adding, 'I've settled in well here at Villa. Everyone has welcomed me and that has been a big help. What I want now is to be settled for the next five to 10 years. I want to play as many games as possible.'

This flies slightly in the face of what Martin O'Neill said recently when Carson was linked to a £10million move in the January transfer window. O'Neill said it was 'news' to him. He also added there would be 'no point' talking to Liverpool about it as the keeper is on loan only, 'that's in black and white. There's nothing in any agreement for any price at all.'

I can only assume he doesn't think he'll ever be No1 at Liverpool. Whilst Benitez is there that might be the case, but Benitez's job is on the line and could well be out by the new year. Under these circumstances I find Carson's comments strange.

He made it into Garth Crooks team of the weekend this weekend. Not quite sure how as he didnt have much to do against Derby really.

How the heck did he make it into the team of the week? Still not totally convinced about Carson, but £10milllion seems the going rate these days. Would rather the money went towards a decent right-back and a proper striker, neither of which MON currently has at his disposal.

I'm still coming to terms with the fact that talented, highly promising youngsters are once again ready and more than willing to throw in their lot with our club. That alone speaks volumes for the Randy Lerner/MON era.

I can't see the point of him being at Liverpool if they keep loaning him out for a season at a time!
