Carlisle United have signed Charlton Athletic central defender Kevin Feely on a one-month loan deal which will keep him at Brunton Park until midnight on 4 September.
The Irish U21 international Feely joined the Bohemians at the end of 2012 having been scouted by a number of clubs, including Peterborough United and Everton.
The 20-year-old played a huge part in the treble winning feats of the Development squad at the Valley last season and has been on the brink of the first team throughout his time with the club.
Manager Greg Abbott said:
“It's an area where we need cover at the moment and he is a very good player who can come in and do that for us,”
"He's a big, strong player who can play a bit of football as well, so we're looking forward to working with him.
"He comes very highly rated and he's another who is very keen and hungry to be involved. Hopefully this will be a good month for him and us."
