Carlisle snap up Hull midfielder

John Welsh
Welsh made four Premier League appearances for Liverpool

Carlisle United have signed Hull City midfielder John Welsh on a one-month loan deal.

The 24-year-old former Liverpool trainee signed for the Tigers in 2005 and could make his Carlisle debut against Hartlepool on Tuesday.

"He is a holding midfielder who can help to steady things up in the middle of the park," manager John Ward told the official club website.

"I feel that we need a bit more cover in that area at the moment."

Welsh found his chances with Hull limited after breaking his leg in a match against Preston in 2007, and spent part of last season on loan at Chester.

Carlisle boss Ward will be hoping Welsh can help to halt an alarming slide down the table after a run of seven defeats in eight League One matches.

During that run, which includes Saturday's 5-0 thrashing at Colchester, the Cumbrians have slid from a play-off position to just three points off the relegation zone.
