On-loan Liverpool stopper Scott Carson has expressed his desire to stay with Wednesday rather than return to Anfield and fight for his place in the first team.

Carson pulled out a man-of-the-match performance in front of England coach Ray Clemence in the Owls shock 3-1 victory over high-flying Wolves at the weekend.

The former Leeds ‘keeper told the Sun: ‘I’m on a month’s loan and can be called back to Anfield in 24 hours. But if it’s left to me I’d love to stay with Wednesday and help them out of the mire.’

With Jose Reina and Jerzy Dudek in front of Carson in the pecking order, chance have been limited at the Merseyside club. Owls boss Paul Sturrock will hope he can extend the deal until the end of the season.

Carson continued: ‘It’s very frustrating when you’re not playing in games and I really love it at Hillsborough. Wednesday have put my family and me in a nice flat and I can really see me enjoying myself until the end of the season.’

Wednesday are unbeaten since the England under-21 internationan joined on loan – drawing with QPR, and beating promotion hopefuls Preston North End and Wolves.
