Keith Curle says Derek Asamoah has agreed a deal in principle to rejoin Carlisle United.

The 35-year-old is set to sign a short-term contract at Brunton Park tomorrow.

It follows a trial period when the veteran rejoined Curle's squad for training.

Curle revealed the deal during a Carlisle United Official Supporters' Club fans' forum tonight.

The manager was asked by a supporter "when Derek will be signing".

Curle replied: "Tomorrow morning, 10 o'clock."

The Blues boss went on: "We've been able to made Derek an offer which has been agreed in principle.

"He needs to see it in writing now. It needs to be signed tomorrow by 12pm for him to be available to play on Saturday."

It was also confirmed at tonight's forum that the former Chelsea player on trial with the club is left-back Kevin Wright.

Joint assistant manager Lee Dykes said United have been tracking the 20-year-old since his time with the Stamford Bridge giants.

Injury ruled him out of Tuesday's reserve friendly at Burnley but United are still assessing the player.

Dykes said: "He is an attack-minded full-back, which is something we are continually looking at…watch this space."

Earlier today Curle insisted re-signing Asamoah - a player he released in May - would not be a backward step.

Curle told the News & Star : "Derek was not engaged this season because I wasn't going to be able to offer him the game-time 34 and 35-year-olds want.

"Derek didn't want to just sign a contract and be a squad player. He wants to finish his career playing football.

"But the situation has slightly changed for both parties, whereby I haven't been able to bring in that dynamic striker I wanted with pace - and also the market I'm shopping in has been significantly reduced with the [emergency loan] law change.

"Derek's out there, he's got pace, I know his character and willingness to work, and I know the lad can score goals. He can scare life out of defences at this level."

The manager is continuing to assess Alex McQueen after the right-back also featured in the Burnley game.
