Carlisle United have signed Rotherham United forward Joshua Kayode on loan until the end of the current campaign.

The 19-year-old joins on a half-season loan deal, having spent the first half of the season at National League North side Gateshead.

"He's a player who is young, ambitious, and he wants to make an impact," Carlisle boss Chris Beech said.

"He's 100% up for this opportunity and he wants to come in and do as well as he can."

Kayode was an unused substitute during Rotherham's 3-1 away win at Oxford United last weekend, and featured in their 3-2 EFL Trophy victory over Doncaster Rovers in October.

He signed for the Millers in 2017, before joining Chesterfield on loan last season, where he made three appearances.
