Liverpool goalkeeper Scott Carson says signing permanently with Aston Villa is his priority.

Tottenham have been linked with the England international, but Carson says: "I want to settle down next season if I'm not going to be a No.1 at Liverpool. For the last four years, I've been backwards and forwards to Sheffield, Charlton and Villa, that's quite difficult.

"Villa are my No.1 choice though. It's got to be, definitely. I've had a lot of support from everyone at the club."
