He now gives boss Paul Simpson a further midfield option as the Carlisle boss bolsters his squad early in the new campaign.

Harris came through Fulham's academy from 2009 and was with the club until 2021.

He had a loan spell at Woking in 2020 before joining Aldershot permanently, whilst he also had a loan spell at Hampton & Richmond Town last season.

Simpson, speaking on United's website, said: "I’m really pleased that we’ve been able to get Jayden signed.

"He’s a big, physical, mobile box-to-box style midfielder who has a lot of growth potential.

“I think he’s a very good addition to our squad and hopefully, with bringing him here, he will add value to the club.”

Aldershot manager Mark Molesley told his club's website: “The move presents a a good deal for both the player and the club.

“As a club we want to create a pathway for younger players to progress in their careers and Jayden leaves with our best wishes for the future and our thanks for all his efforts whilst at the club.”
