Pascal Chimbonda seals Carlisle United move

Carlisle United complete the signing of former Tottenham Hotspur defender Pascal Chimbonda on a three-month deal.

Former Tottenham Hotspur defender Pascal Chimbonda has completed a move to Carlisle United on a free transfer.

Chimbonda has signed a three-month deal at Brunton Park, and manager Graham Kavanagh has admitted that he has been surprised with the fitness levels of the Frenchman.

The 39-year-old told the club's official website: "I know what he's capable of. He's been a real breath of fresh air since I invited him to train with us.

"He just wants to play football. He's been playing in non-league football to keep himself fit, not because that's the level he should be playing at.

"We did some testing on Tuesday and I was actually surprised with his levels of fitness. It will take him a few games to get his match fitness back but I think that he's got the ability."

Kavanagh and Chimbonda were teammates during their respective spells with Wigan Athletic and Sunderland.
