League Two outfit Carlisle United have reportedly signed striker Ben Tomlinson and midfielder Samir Nabi.

Tomlinson left Barnet in January after spending two years at the League Two side. The 27-year old joined Carlisle on non-contract terms as the team fights for the rest eight games of this season.

On the other hand, Nabi is a 20-year old talented player from West Bromwich Albion academy. Nabi was with Indian Super League side Delhi Dynamos before he agreed to a deal that will keep for the rest of the season at United. Nabi has experience playing for West Brom’s Under 23 side which Carlisle considered before agreeing to sign him.

Manager Keith Curle feels both stars have thing going good for them and that they would add to the team’s capacity.

“Samir’s had an excellent grounding and he’s another who has something slightly different to what we already have in the group,” Curle said in response to why he signed the youngster.

On Tomlinson, Curle said that the player has “good habits and dynamics and he likes scoring goals and causing opposition defences as many problems as possible.” The player trained with the team in the past week and Curle noted that he has “integrated quickly and well.”

The coach, who has been at the club since 2014 when he replaced Graham Kavanagh, is keen on helping the club rediscover their form. There were reports that the board might release him particularly after their 2-0 loss to Mansfield. However, he came out to deny such links and promised to turn around the fortunes of the club.
