Carlisle United have signed Preston striker Connor Simpson on loan until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old, who has made one appearance for the North End, had a loan spell with National League side Hartlepool in 2017-18.

Simpson could make his debut in Saturday's trip to Northampton.

"He's a young man who has been on our radar for a little while," director of football David Holdsworth told the club website.
