Carlisle right-back Paul Arnison has verbally agreed a new contract with the League Two champions.
The 28-year-old former Newcastle stopper has made over 100 appearances for Paul Simpson's side.
Boss Simpson said: "It's obviously very good to get this sorted out as it helps towards our planning for next season.
"Arnie had a superb season for us and we're looking for more of the same as we move up a division. He's a great character to have around."
