The former England international Scott Carson extended his stay at Etihad Stadium for another year after becoming a free agent.

The 35-year-old goalkeeper spent the last two seasons of his contract with Derby County on loan at Manchester City and extended his contract for another year after his contract expired.

Carson has told the club's official website:

"It's a pleasure and a privilege to be part of the setup here at City

.

"To be around Pep [Guardiola] and his backroom staff is fantastic and I feel I have learnt so much since I joined in 2019.

"The lads made me feel at home straight away and I have loved every second of my two years here.

"To commit for another year was such an easy decision. I want to continue pushing the other goalkeepers we have here and I want to make sure my experience rubs off on them."

Director of football Txiki Begiristain added on reaching another deal with Carson with four England caps to his name: "

Scott brings a wealth of knowledge to the squad

.

"He is a former international goalkeeper who has played in lots of big games during a long career.

"We know he is always ready to play, if we need to call upon him. 

"The lads love him, and I know his experience has been a huge help to Ederson and Zack Steffen."
