Manager Keith Curle reveals that free agent Derek Asamoah is training with Carlisle United.

Carlisle United manager Keith Curle has confirmed that Derek Asamoah has started training with the club.

The 33-year-old, who played under Curle earlier in his career with Mansfield and Chester, has been without a team since he left South Korean outfit Daegu FC last year.

"Whether you could call it a trial I don't know. He's doing some conditioning work to get himself in a position where he could play a couple of games," Curle told the News & Star.

"We were thinking about an in-house game, but I don't like them. I like a little bit more competitive edge."

Asamoah has been capped on four occasions by Ghana at senior international level.
