Carlisle United have confirmed that Derek Asamoah has agreed a short-term deal following a recent trial spell.

The 33-year-old forward began his career with Northampton, before spells with Mansfield, Lincoln and Chester.

He then scored 10 goals in 39 league games for Shrewsbury and secured a £50,000 move to French side Nice, but joined Hamilton two years later.

The forward has since played in Bulgaria and most recently has been plying his trade in South Korea.

Asamoah, who will wear the number 25 shirt for Carlisle, has made four appearances for Ghana, scoring one goal.
