Nadesan's back

Carlisle United Football Club have today signed Fleetwood Town striker Ashley Nadesan on a half-season loan deal which keeps him at Brunton Park until the January transfer window.

Nadesan, 24 next month, is another familiar face having spent the second half of last season on loan with the Blues.

He became a favourite with United’s fans following some excellent performances which saw him score four goals in his 15 appearances for the club.

With 9 starts under his belt, he admitted at the end of the year that the move had been exactly what he needed as his confidence grew with every appearance.

The tricky forward moved to Highbury in the summer of 2016 having played most of his football with Horley Town in the Combined Counties leagues.

He bagged 99 goals in just two seasons for the Surrey-based outfit and was top scorer in the district’s Premier Division with 45 goals during the 2015/16 campaign.

He made his debut for Fleetwood in August 2017 and played in the 2-1 victory over United in the Checkatrade Trophy meeting between the sides earlier this season.

Having worked hard through pre-season, he was on the bench for the opening game of the current campaign when Fleetwood hosted Wimbledon at Highbury.

This deal remains subject to the clearance of all paperwork.

Nadesan will wear squad number 23.
