Now this is a man who is inclined to sort out his future as soon as possible. Scott Carson is on loan from Liverpool to Aston Villa for until the end of the season and the young England international is enjoying his days at the Midlands immensely. After all, Villa are flying high in the English Premier League and are on course for a UEFA Cup qualification.
But Carson wants his future wants to be resolved immediately. Although he has been excellent so far this season, Carson is still not sure where he shall be come next season and says:
I’d like to know what is happening because I’ve got my girlfriend and my son to think about.
My son turned two last week and he’s started going to nursery school so we need to get settled.
I’ve still got a contract with Liverpool and. until someone does a deal with them, I can’t do anything.
It’s not a done deal (with Liverpool). Villa paid a loan fee for me until the end of the season and anytime from now until then, they could make it permanent.’
I can’t really say where I’d like to be because I’m still under contract at Liverpool and I don’t know what is going to happen there.
I like it at Villa and I want to get settled for next season.
There’s not a lot I can do. I’ve got three years left at Liverpool and I don’t know what Aston Villa are thinking. I don’t know if there is anything else in the pipe-line. We will have to wait and see.
On his performance this season, Carson certainly is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premiership at the moment. Yet a return to Liverpool would only enhance his time on the bench while at Villa, he would be assured of more playing time. Yet Aston Villa boss Martin O’Neill hasn’t said anything about a permanent deal with the player.
