Carlisle Watching Shay Given Situation!

Last updated : 22 January 2009 By Footy Mad - Editor
Krul has returned to Newcastle after making nine appearances during a two-month loan spell at Carlisle, and Joe Kinnear is currently reluctant to agree to a deal because of a bid for Given.

Shay Given was the subject of a £8m offer from City and Steve Harper has yet to sign the deal put on the table.

Abbott: "We are still waiting to see what happens with the Newcastle United situation but, at the moment, Tim Krul is their player.

"If that situation gets resolved then there may be room for us to ask the question again, but we are very much on the back foot at the moment."
