Danny Cadamarteri has become the latest acquisition for Carlisle United, and he has said in his first major interview as the Carlisle United player that the ambition shown by the manager Greg Abbott was extremely crucial in securing the move to Carlisle.

The 32-year-old is available as a free transfer is after being released by his former club Huddersfield. He was one of the influential players for the club last season, and he hopes to maintain the form this time around as well. The former Everton defender, who has scored against the likes of Arsenal and Man City has also revealed that he turned down the opportunity to play for two Scottish Premier league clubs in order to sign for Carlisle United.

He has also revealed that Carlisle United were the only club who were extremely insistent upon signing him throughout the close season. The signing of Danny Cadamarteri is a major bonus for Greg Abbott, as he plots the way to get Carlisle United into the Championship. The experience offered by the former Everton defender will be a major boost according to Greg Abbott. Danny Cadamarteri has signed a two year contract with the club. He has made almost 400 appearances in his career and is regarded as one of the best defenders in the division.

“I’ve had some great times and experiences in my career but it’s better to look forward than into the past. I could have gone to Scotland and the SPL, but I’ve done everything I wanted to do in Scotland, including playing in the Europa League and winning the Scottish Cup. Now I want to be involved in another League One promotion and play an active part in that with Carlisle. I’ve signed a two-year contract and part of the reason for that was to hopefully enjoy my first season, get promoted and have the opportunity to play in the Championship with Carlisle,” said Cadamarteri.
