Jordan Mustoe: Joins Carlisle on loan from Wigan

Mustoe is regarded as an exciting prospect for the future by the Latics but has yet to establish himself in Roberto Martinez's first team.

He has already had spells out on loan with Barnet and Morecambe and has now been sent to gain further experience in the lower leagues.

A deal was agreed on Thursday for the 22-year-old to head to Brunton Park, where he will provide another defensive option for Greg Abbott.

Abbott told Carlisle's website: "Jordan is one we've been talking about for a while now and it's good for us that we've got him in.

"He's had a couple of good, long loan spells before this one, where he has done very well, and he's very highly thought of at Wigan.

"He adds more options to the squad and it should help us with the work we have been doing defensively over the last couple of months.

"It's a great opportunity for him to come in and get some competitive football at an age when that's exactly what he wants and needs.

"As always in these cases, if it goes well, as we think it will, then it's a good move for all concerned."

The Cumbrians are currently 16th in League One after a promising recent run which has seen them beaten just once in six games.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
