Manchester United midfielder Reece James' loan at Carlisle United has stalled.

James was not involved in Carlisle United's 4-0 defeat to Coventry City in League One, having returned to Old Trafford earlier this month for assessment on a thigh problem.

Carlisle boss Greg Abbott said last week: "We're not certain how long we'll be without Reece but we want him back with us as soon as possible."
