Speculation seems to be:
Celtic (massive step down and to a club embroiled in religious bigotry- not an attractive option IMHO)
Man City (to watch Joe Hart play - but could turn out well as I reckon he could give Hart a run for his money)
Arsenal (again he would have to fight for the No1 Jersey)
I wish the lad all the best. Top keeper who has been recently unlucky but can still cut it at the top.
I don't think either ManC or Arse will sign a seriously injured player. Gordon isn't going to be fit for the start of the season (not pre-season training) so its going to be a long time before he's match fit. If they did sign him, they'd have to have cover for him for the start of the season.
The risk is he might be permanently damaged by what has happened and never attain the heights he was at. No-one's going to gamble millions on that.
As for us signing Westwood, well we need three good keepers and Carson is going / gone so we need someone. Better get someone decent too as Craig might not fully recover and we will be left with SM and Westie in the frontline until the January transfer window opens. Quite a sensible approach IMHO.
