Liverpool youth-team goalkeeper Shamal George has joined League Two side Carlisle on loan after signing a new contract with Liverpool F.C.

The 19-year-old completed the formalities on an extension to his current deal before moving to Cumbria for a temporary spell initially lasting until January. Carlisle's goalkeeping coach Simon Tracey has welcomed George's move to Brunton Park.

It has been a dream for me to play for this club, so to get another contract on top of what I've already had is a good feeling. Game time is important for me because last year I didn't play much. Game time is the main focus. Liverpool will be watching me so hopefully they'll see I'm good enough and I can come back and push on here."
