Carlisle United have signed Manchester United goal keeper Ben Amos on a one month deal.
The 23-year-old has been capped by England at youth and under 21 level and has experience in the Championship playing for Hull City.
Amos joined the Red Devils when he was 11-years-old before signing for the Academy forms at Old Trafford in 2006.
He made his full debut for United in September 2008 and made his Premier League Debut in January 2012.
On the Carlisle United website, manager Graham Kavanagh said:
"We obviously had the injury to Mark Gillespie last weekend and that meant we needed to bring another body in to help to cover that position."
"As soon as it became apparent that he would be missing for a period of time we knew it was something we had to deal with urgently. We already had three or four names on a list, for situations such as this, and we feel this will be a good one for us.”
“Tony Caig made quite a few phone calls to get things sorted out and, as usual, Manchester United have been fantastic with us. They wanted him to come to us and play because he hasn’t had games recently."
"They think very highly of him, so this fits perfectly with what they want for him at the moment.”
