Danny Redmond is not looking beyond the end of the season after extending his loan spell at Carlisle.
The 23-year-old Wigan midfielder, who made the temporary switch to Brunton Park in February, this week agreed to stay on for the rest of the campaign.
He told the Cumbrians' website: "I had a call off (operations manager) Matt Jackson at Wigan and he said he'd been told I was doing well.
"He asked me if I wanted to stay and I said yes straight away. I'm just glad it's all sorted now.
"I'm not sure about my long-term future at the moment because I haven't had the chance to speak to Wigan.
"I'm just concentrating on playing my football here now. We want to get our league status secured as early as possible so we can really enjoy the end of the season."
