LOAN: Midfielder recalled

26 March 2014

Red Devil returns to Old Trafford

Carlisle United Football Club can confirm midfielder Charni Ekangamene has been recalled from his half-season loan spell at Brunton Park by parent club Manchester United.

Ekangamene, 20, joined the Cumbrians at the end of the January transfer window and made four appearances in a blue shirt before being called back to Old Trafford to feature for the Red Devils’ development squad.

“Charni is a great lad and we wish him all the best with Manchester United,” manager Graham Kavanagh said. "We saw some good stuff from him but it became a complicated situation with the fact he needed to be playing for the development squad down there.

"Warren Joyce and Man United have been superb for us with all of their players so this is one we completely understand. Like I say, he's a good player and I'm sure he'll do well."

Belgian-born, but of Congolese descent, Ekangamene moved to Manchester from Royal Antwerp after United beat off interest from Arsenal, Chelsea and Ajax to capture his signature.
