Carlisle United are delighted to confirm that Millwall defender James Brown is staying with the Blues until the end of the current campaign.
Dover-born Brown, 20 this month, initially joined the Cumbrians at the end of the August transfer window and has made 22 appearances for the club so far.
Manager Keith Curle said: “James has settled well, and I know the fans have appreciated his energy and determination levels in the games he’s played.
“He was at a stage where he needed to be in a first team environment and he’s taken the chance he’s been given well. Millwall are happy with how his development is going, and James is enjoying the work he’s doing with us.
“There was interest from elsewhere, but I think all parties have agreed that this is a good fit. His first few months in men’s football have been good, but we still feel there is more to come.
“We’re looking forward to watching him continue to work hard to claim his starting place through the second half of the campaign.”
Brown signed for the Lions as a schoolboy and earned his first professional contract at the New Den in the spring of 2016.
He made his debut for his parent club in October 2016 in a 2-1 EFL Trophy victory over Gillingham.
This loan deal remains subject to the clearance of all relevant paperwork.
