Carlisle United have signed Cardiff utility man Miguel Comminges on loan until 31 December.

The 28-year-old missed much of last season with a knee injury and has not featured for the Cardiff first team this term.

"We need some defensive cover and Miguel will provide that," Carlisle boss Greg Abbott told the club website.

"He's a player that we know a lot about and we are delighted that he is coming to join us."

The Guadeloupe international, whose contract at Cardiff expires at the end of the season, joined Swindon from French side Riems in the summer of 2007 before moving to the Welsh capital a year later.

"He had a great time at Swindon and was progressing well at Cardiff, but his injury forced him out of the side," added Abbott.

He is strong, he's quick and he has an excellent reputation, so we're looking forward to working with him

"A lot of hard work has been done to get him back to match fitness and this move will give him a chance to get in and around our first team squad.

"He is strong, he's quick and he has an excellent reputation, so we're looking forward to working with him.

"If things go well, there may even be the option to take this further, but obviously we all want to this initial period to settle him in, and we'll see how it goes from there."
