Manchester United defender Joe Dudgeon has joined Carlisle United on loan until June 30.

Leeds-born Dudgeon came through the academy at the Old Trafford and made his debut for the Under 18s at the age of just 15.

The 20-year defender was promoted to the reserve side last season, though he has yet to make his debut for Sir Alex Ferguson's senior side.

Carlisle manager Greg Abbott told the club's official website: "We've been looking at Joe ever since the injury to Sean McDaid happened, and we had actually watched him before that as one that we might try to follow up in the future.

"He will come in and provide real competition for that left back spot as he is another very good young player. Manchester United speak very highly of him and he has been solid and shown ability in the games that we have seen him play.

"He's the type of person and player that we want to add to the squad so we're delighted that he is joining us."
