Carlisle United have announced their seventh player this week to have signed a new deal with the Blues.

The Blues have extended 24-year-old midfieilder Callum Guy’s deal, which will keep him at the club until the end of next season.

Guy signed for the Cumbrians from Blackpool during the January 2020 transfer window and has made 46 appearances for the Blues so far.

A set-piece specialist, he has picked up a number of man-of-the-match awards this season, having recovered from a nasty knee injury picked up just before the March lockdown last year.

Director of football David Holdsworth said: “Callum has had a wonderful season with us and has been a big influence on the pitch.

“He’s a whole-hearted boy and I’m sure the fans appreciate the commitment he puts in during every game.

“He’s grown to be a leader and he’s another we’d like to stay longer, beyond the term of this clause, if we can work something out.

“For now the good news is that he’s with us next season, the rest will look after itself.”
