Carlisle United have signed Swindon Town defender Troy Archibald-Henville on a one-month loan deal.

The 24-year-old could make his debut for the Cumbrians at Brentford this afternoon.

"Troy is a big defender who has experience at this level," Carlisle manager Greg Abbott told the club's official website.

"He's tough and he can play a bit of football, and he joins us at a time when we need a bit of cover in that area.

"He's another who is versatile and, as with all moves like this, it's one which should benefit all parties concerned."

Archibald-Henville, who is a product of Tottenham Hotspur's youth system, has made just eight appearances for Swindon since signing from Exeter City for an initial fee of £275,000 last summer.
