Carlisle United have offered trials to Newcastle United striker Ryan Donaldson.

Donaldson was released by Toon at the end of last season.

Manager Greg Abbott told the club's official website: "He did well in the first half at Durham and we spoke to him about coming back to join us.

"He will come along for the second part of this week and he should be involved at some stage in the game on Friday night. We will make a decision from there."
