Carlisle have confirmed the signing of former Crystal Palace and Southampton utility-man Danny Butterfield.

The 33-year old, who was a free agent following his release from Saints this summer, has initially joined on non-contract terms.

"He knows the game inside out," manager Greg Abbott told the club's official website.

"Danny has played consistently well at a high level. He has that bit of knowledge and experience."

The addition of Butterfield, who can play at the back as well as in midfield, could allow current right-back Brad Potts to push into a more advanced role in Friday night's game against Colchester.
