Carlisle in Newcastle, Man City talks for loan players

Carlisle United boss Greg Abbott hopes to take several Newcastle United youngsters on-loan next season.

Newcastle are just one of the clubs who have already indicated to Abbott they would like to loan him players next term.

"I've told Manchester City, Newcastle and Sunderland players would be better off playing at this level - and their managers totally agree," Abbott revealed.

"All three have said if they can get them in our team we would rather have that than them playing in the reserves, so it's a good situation for us.

"The more links you can have with Premier League clubs the better, and we have made rapid strides in that respect with the likes of Newcastle and Sunderland, who have been very good to us."
