NI keeper Trevor Carson on the move

Northern Ireland goalkeeper Trevor Carson has left Dundee United and signed a two-year deal with fellow Scottish Premiership side St Mirren for an undisclosed fee.  

The 34-year-old will once again link up with Saints boss Stephen Robinson who he has previously worked with at Motherwell, Morecambe and of course Northern Ireland.

“It’s been in the pipeline for a couple of weeks,” Carson told the club website. “I’m just delighted to come here and hopefully show the fans what I can do.

“In terms of a football decision this ticks all the boxes. I’m convinced we will do well next year and I want to be a part of that. I know what a good club this is and how ambitious it is as well so that was a big thing for me.

“I’m excited with the lads the gaffer is bringing in,” added the Downpatrick native. “He’s putting together a good dressing room and I look around the squad that is already here I can't wait to meet them and get started.”

Last season Carson, who started his career with Sunderland, made only five appearances for Dundee United before being snapped up on loan in January by Morecambe who were then managed by Stephen Robinson.

Carson has won seven full international caps for his country the last being in a 1-0 friendly victory in Tallin over Estonia in September last year.
