Reece James: Recalled early from loan spell with Carlisle by Manchester United

The 19-year-old joined the Cumbrians in August but only recently returned to full training after an injury lay-off.

A mutually agreed recall means James leaves Brunton Park after just one month, having initially signed a deal until January 2014.

However, despite the departure, Carlisle caretaker manager Graham Kavanagh has secured the services of Hull City defender Conor Townsend as cover for the injured Chris Chantler.

"We brought Conor Townsend in from Hull as cover and we are now in a situation where Chris Chantler is well ahead in terms of where we expected him to be with his recovery," he told the club's official website.

He added Manchester United have been "really understanding with us" in regards to the injury sustained by James during the loan spell.

James was only able to make two appearances during his time at Carlisle, one in their penalty shoot-out victory against Blackburn Rovers in the first round of the Capital One Cup and the other in the Blues' season opener with Leyton Orient.

Meanwhile, the club also announced that Chantler has joined the youth team for training this week and could be back with the first team next week.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
