Carlisle Utd tie up emergency loan deal for Man Utd player Corry Evans

Manchester United starlet Corry Evans has signed a one-month emergency loan deal with Carlisle United.

He will go straight into the squad to face Charlton Athletic at Brunton Park tomorrow, though his registration is pending final clearance from the FA, Premier League and Football League authorities.

Belfast-born Evans - younger brother of Red Devils star Jonny - is a product of Man Utd's youth academy.

He is a midfielder but can also play in defence.

He has yet to make his first team debut for the Premier League side but has seven caps for the Northern Ireland senior squad.

He scored his first goal for his country in the 1-0 win over Slovenia in a recent European Championship qualifier.

His signing will help lift the injury gloom at Brunton Park.

The Blues have suffered a devastating double blow ahead of tomorrow's Charlton clash.

Left-back Sean McDaid has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury, while midfielder Oliver Norwood, also a Man Utd player, who signed for a second month on loan this week, is out for four weeks with a thigh injury.

Carlisle manager Greg Abbott said: "Manchester United have been absolutely fantastic in helping us out with what we think is another quality addition to the squad.

"He comes here ready to play and he is the kind of player who keeps us moving in the right direction.

"He has proven quality and he has already told us how much he is looking forward to being involved.

"We think this is a good signing at a time when we needed to add to the squad in what is a key area."

McDaid - who signed a one-year deal in the summer - felt a click in the knee joint during the 2-1 defeat at Exeter last Saturday.

He reported some stiffness in the knee on Sunday, there was swelling around the area on Monday and he underwent surgery yesterday afternoon.

Abbott said McDaid, 24, would be a big miss on and off the pitch.

"He typifies the kind of player that every manager wants in his squad with his attitude, work rate and overall professionalism, and he carries that onto the field of play every time he crosses the white line.

"We will now support Sean as much as we can as he begins the recovery process," he added.

Norwood will remain with Man Utd throughout his recovery, said Abbott, who added the Carlisle stint had provided the 19-year-old with valuable experience.

"Unfortunately this will obviously affect the loan spell that he would have had with us over this next month, but he is one that we will keep an eye on when he returns to action in the near future," added the manager.
