Carlisle defender Chris Chantler has been ruled out for the rest of the season as he needs an ankle operation.

The 22-year-old joined the Cumbrians from Manchester City after a successful loan spell and had featured 31 times this season, mainly at left-back.

"Following further consultations with our surgeon, it was decided Chris would undergo surgery immediately," physio Neil Dalton told the club website.external-link

"This was decided as the best way to ensure he will be fit for pre-season."
