Carlisle United have signed central defender Tom Parkes on a two-year deal, which keeps him at Brunton Park until the summer of 2019.

The 25-year-old joined Leicester City as a scholar and had loan spells with Burton Albion, Yeovil Town and Bristol Rovers during his time at the Walkers Stadium.

Tom is a very combative centre back who has a great left foot. He can step in and play football and he can help us to build our play from the back. "Ultimately he likes to defend and there are parts of his game we know we can benefit from greatly."
