O'Halloran's career has been plagued by injuries

Republic of Ireland defender Stephen O'Halloran has agreed to sign a contract with Carlisle on 1 August.

The ex-Aston Villa trainee, now 23, was released by Coventry this summer after 13 appearances in one season there.

He will sign a one-year deal at Brunton Park with the club having the option to extend that for another season.

Boss Greg Abbott told the club website:  "We think Stephen is a player with a bit of quality. He's had a fantastic upbringing in the game."
