Manchester City are reportedly expected to sign Derby goalkeeper Scott Carson on loan for another season.

The former England international was signed to provide cover for Ederson and back-up keeper Claudio Bravo.

City, meanwhile, have been put on red alert with Lyon admitting that Houssem Aouar could leave Ligue 1 club this summer if they receive an offer in the region of £44million.
The 22-year-old is one of the brightest young talents in Europe and also has interest from Arsenal and Juventus.
City’s primary goal this summer is to sign another defensive-minded player but may be tempted by Aouar’s low asking price.
