Ben Amos recently returned to Manchester United following the expiry of his loan deal with League One side Carlisle United but their boss Graham Kavanagh wants to take him back for the season.
Amos played nine times for Carlisle during his spell with the club and Kavanagh has spoken of his desire to have him back.
“We’re still talking to Manchester United about Ben Amos,” he confirmed.
“We’ve made a couple of calls and I think he really enjoyed his time here. He was making a name for himself again and I don’t think there’s anything like a real first team environment for any player.
It seems that Amos’ performances for Carlisle have caught the attention of other clubs, so Amos will probably head back out on loan but not necessarily to rejoin with United colleague Tom Lawrence with the Cumbrians.
Kavanagh continued: “We gave him a platform and I think that’s what sparks interest from other clubs. I had a chat with him and I’m clear on what he wants to do, but I think that whatever he decides he has to make sure he’s playing regularly. We would like to have him back but I’m just not sure if it’s going to be possible.”
Injuries mean that Carlisle are light in the goalkeeping department so any decision from United and Amos on a possible return will need to be made soon.
Kavanagh has also praised the way Manchester United have dealt with Amos.
He added: “Manchester United have been wonderful in the way they have helped us with the financial side of their deals and that has allowed me to do other things.”
Kavanagh also confirmed that he didn’t know at this stage whether or not Tom Lawrence would be extended his stay at the club beyond 28 January.
