Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Amos has joined League One side Carlisle United on a month's loan deal.

The 23-year-old, who is yet to feature for Manchester United this season, joins former Cardiff City midfielder Graham Kavanagh's side.

Amos will be available to play in Carlisle United's five league games between now and December 14, but will not be able to participate in the FA Cup.

The Red Devils shot stopper will be embarking on his fifth loan spell after spending temporary spells at Peterborough United, Molde, Oldham and Hull City over the last four years.

Kavanagh, speaking to Carlisle United's official website, said on Amos:

"As usual, Manchester United have been fantastic with us.

"They wanted him to come to us and play because he hasn't had games recently. They think very highly of him so this fits perfectly with what they want for him at the moment.

"I've seen him quite a few times over the years and he's a good, all-round keeper."

The former England Under-21 goalkeeper has had to make do with appearances for Manchester United's development team as he remains behind David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard in the Premier League champions' goalkeeping pecking order.

Amos joins fellow Manchester United academy graduate Reece James at Brunton Park.
