Aston Villa skipper Gareth Barry believes Scott Carson´s England hopes can only be enhanced by his move to the midlands club after the 21-year-old agreed to join Villa on a season-long loan from Liverpool in a deal costing around £2million.

The former Leeds goalkeeper spent a similar spell with Charlton last season. He is expected to make his debut for Villa in next weekend´s Premier League game at Newcastle.

Barry said: "This is a great signing for Aston Villa. Scott is a proven Premier League player and he came close to keeping Charlton up last season when he turned in some excellent performances."
