Man City goalkeeper left 'aggrieved' by new dispute - club demanding six-figure sum this month

Manchester City goalkeeper Scott Carson has reportedly been left 'aggrieved' by a dispute between his current club and his parent side Derby County over his immediate future, as per the latest claims from England.

Manchester City goalkeeper Scott Carson has reportedly been left 'aggrieved' by a dispute between his current club and his parent side Derby County over his immediate future, as per the latest claims from England.

The veteran stopper is currently acting as a back-up to both Zack Steffen and Ederson at the Etihad Stadium, but his importance in a leadership sense among the first-team is a factor that has been recognised by Pep Guardiola so far this season.

According to an exclusive report from the Mail, the 35-year-old is understood to feel 'aggrieved' at Derby County for blocking a proposed permanent move to Manchester City. It is claimed that Carson feels it could cost him the chance of a further 12 months at a top Premier League club and potentially bring a premature end to his career.

The report suggests that Derby have also 'angered' Manchester City by blocking their attempts to sign Scott Carson on a permanent deal this month, with the Rams insisting on collecting a loan fee, which is claimed to be £500,000, this month to help pay overdue player wages. City remain insistent on wanting to sign Carson permanently this month on an 18-month contract.

Pep Guardiola did further insist on a lack of transfer business this month, possibly due to the current financial situation affecting football, or due to his happiness with his current crop of players - who are on an impressive run of form both in the league and cup competitions.
