Carson made just three Premier League appearances for Leeds United before being snapped up Liverpool in January 2005.
He made his debut two months later against Newcastle United and played in the Champions League quarter-final against Juventus as the Reds reached and won the final that season against AC Milan.
He then spent time on loan at Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton Athletic and Aston Villa before penning a permanent deal with fellow Premier League side West Bromwich Albion in July 2008.
Carson made 110 league appearances for the Baggies before a two-year spell with Turkish Super Lig club Bursaspor. He then returned to England in July 2013, joining Championship side Wigan Athletic, before a move to Derby County in 2015, where he has since made over 150 appearances.
A former England international, he made his Three Lions debut against Austria in 2007 and has four caps to his name.
