Alessio Bugno

Carlisle United have handed defender Alessio Bugno a two-year contract after he impressed during a three-week trial at Brunton Park.

Former Monza utility man Bugno, 22, has agreed to the deal which remains subject to international clearance.

"He is a really nice lad who has worked hard from day one and he's settled in quickly to the way we do things on and off the pitch," boss Greg Abbott said.external-link

"The way he has come through has been a huge bonus."

Abbott added: "We really think we've got a player we can work with over the course of the next two years.

"He gives us something a little bit extra and it's up to him to carry on the good work and stake a claim."
