Man United stopper agrees loan extension
Manchester United and Carlisle United have today agreed a loan extension for keeper Ben Amos which will keep him at Brunton Park until midnight on 1 January 2014 - pending completion of all necessary paperwork.
Amos, 23, joined United midway through November and has made four appearances, which included a man-of-the-match display in the 2-1 home victory against Crewe.
"I've thoroughly enjoyed the last month because it's been a chance for me to get onto the pitch and get games," he said. "I'm delighted that it's been extended because this has been a great move for me.
"The fans have been brilliant with me and we've picked up some decent results along the way. The games come thick and fast over the Christmas period and hopefully I'll do enough to be involved and to help the team even more."
The impressive stopper has been capped by England at youth and U21 level and gained Championship experience with a six-month loan at Hull City in 2012.
He joined the Red Devils at the age of 11 and signed Academy forms at Old Trafford in 2006. He worked hard and was rewarded with two appearances for the first team during the 2008/09 pre-season campaign.
Amos made his full debut for United against Middlesbrough in the Carling Cup competition in September 2008. He has enjoyed loan spells with Peterborough, Molde and Oldham and made his Premier League debut in a 2-0 victory over Stoke City in January 2012.
We'll have full reaction to this loan extension on the official website later today.
