Bury striker Hope extends loan with the Blues
Carlisle United have today agreed a loan extension with Bury Football Club for forward Hallam Hope which keeps him at Brunton Park until 9 January 2016.
Hope, 21, joined United on a one-month loan deal at the end of October and has made three appearances for the Cumbrians so far.
He bagged the goal which sealed the win in the FA Cup first round away victory against Plymouth but has been recovering from an ankle injury picked up during that game in recent weeks.
Manager Keith Curle said: "Hallam is a player who has qualities we like. He's been left out as a precaution recently, because of the rehab work he's doing on his ankle injury, but he shouldn't be too far away from a return.
"He's enjoyed his time with us and I know he just wants to be out there and showing people what he can do. We think there's more to come from him, he gives us more options, and we're looking forward to having him back in the mix."
Hope started his career when he moved to Everton from Manchester City as a youngster and had loan spells with Northampton, Sheffield Wednesday and Bury (twice) whilst still with the Toffees.
His move to Bury became permanent when he signed a three-and-a-half year deal with the Shakers in January 2015.
He has represented England at the U16, U17, U18 and U19 levels.
