Carlisle United have signed defender Mark Ellis from Shrewsbury Town on a one-month loan deal.

Ellis, 27, has scored one goal in 12 games for the Shrews this season and started all of them.

However he has not featured for the League One side since the arrival of American defender Zak Whitbread on a free transfer this month.

"Mark has a lot of games and experience," Carlisle boss Keith Curle told the club website.external-link
