Manchester City are set to sign experienced Derby goalkeeper Scott Carson on loan
Nottingham Forest had been talking to Carson earlier this week.
City saw a deal for Eibar’s Asier Riesgo fall through last month.
Last season Carson made 30 appearances for Derby in the Championship but he has fallen down the pecking order, with Kelle Roos and Jonathan Mitchell having overtaken him.
City allowed Aro Muric to join Nottingham Forest on loan, while recent signing Zack Steffen will spend the season with Fortuna Dusseldorf.
Carson, who has played 145 times in the Premier League, will be City’s third-choice goalkeeper
Carson, who was capped four times by England between 2007 and 2011, possesses a wealth of Premier League experience.
The shot-stopper has played 145 times in the top flight, having featured in the division for Leeds, Liverpool, Charlton, Aston Villa and West Brom.
City have signed Rodri and Joao Cancelo this summer, while they also re-signed defender Angelino.
