REPORTS this evening have suggested Troy Archibald-Henville is poised to sign for Carlisle United.

The centre-back had been offered a pay as you play deal with Swindon Town following the expiration of his contract with the Wiltshire side, but his name has been circulated around League One and League Two clubs over the course of the last month and Robins manager Mark Cooper recently admitted that the former Tottenham Hotspur trainee looked unlikely to return to the County Ground for the 2014/15 campaign.

Archibald-Henville spent time at Brunton Park on loan last season and the Cumbrians hold the former Exeter City man in high regard.
