Carlisle United have signed Leeds United left-back Ben Parker on a one-month loan deal.

The 24-year-old has played 55 games for Leeds, but has never established himself as a regular and has played just one game this season.

Cumbrians manager Greg Abbott told his club's websiteexternal-link: "He's a good player who needs games and will add to the depth we have here.

"He is versatile and chomping at the bit to be involved."

Parker has previously spent time on loan with both Bradford City and Darlington.
