Aston Villa's loan goalkeeper Scott Carson is hopeful of securing a permanent switch to Villa Park, having admitted that his time at Liverpool is coming to an end.
The 22-year-old made just a handful of appearances for the Reds following his arrival from Leeds United in January 2005, spending last season on loan at Charlton Athletic before heading to Villa Park last summer.
Carson said: "I think something has been agreed whereby, if everyone is happy, it could be made a permanent transfer.
"That is obviously up to the boss but it's something I would welcome. I want to establish myself as a number one and preferably I would like to do it here.
"I've been out on loan a lot over the past couple of seasons and it's not easy when you keep moving up and down the country. It would be nice to settle at a club that I like and where the fans like me.
"I've settled in well here at Villa. Everyone has welcomed me and that has been a big help. What I want now is to be settled for the next five to ten years. I want to play as many games as possible.
"When I first came to Villa, I said I had to be looking to get into Europe and, from the way we have been playing, it is not out of the question."
