Carlisle United: Pascal Chimbonda extends deal until May

Defender Pascal Chimbonda has signed a contract extension to stay at Carlisle United until the end of the season.

His previous deal expired on Sunday, but boss Graham Kavanagh said last week that he expected the former Tottenham and Sunderland full-back would stay.

The 34-year-old ex-France international ended a 15-month free-agent spell when he joined the Cumbrians in October, and has since made 11 League One starts.

Carlisle lie 18th in the table, just two points above the relegation-zone.
