In a deal worth considerably less (you little scamp Raffa!) than what Aston Villa were quoted, West Bromwich Albion have today signed goalkeeper Scott Carson.
When looking overall at the opinion of the now England International, it is difficult to find a middle ground. The general consensus with Villa fans was that Scotty, dodgy moustache and all, was somewhat of a disaster waiting to happen, often delivering as expected with a series of blunders, and absences of the mind, body and even soul as those crosses from out wide came flying in.
The media on the other hand, seem to think that Carson had an "excellent" season with AVFC, and expected us to pay the full whack that Rafa Beneitez was asking for the stopper, who had fallen so far down the Anfield pecking order, I doubt he was pecked at all.
Stoke and West Brom were linked with moves, and Thursday saw Tony Pullis` side pull out of negations to take the keeper to the Britannia Stadium, now complete with it`s statue in the honour of legendary goalkeeper Gordon Banks.
This is where West Brom stepped in, and have now snapped up ex-Villa and Charlton loanee for an initial £3.25million.
Carson`s agent, Colin Gordon told Sky Sports:
"The deal has been done. Scott has signed a four-year deal with West Brom.
"They will pay £3.25million which will rise to £4million for Scott."
