The 23-year-old's departure comes after he was left out of Blackpool's squad for Tuesday night's 2-1 defeat at Wycombe Wanderers.

Guy initially joined the club on loan from Derby County in August 2018 before his move was made permanent the following January.

Having agreed a permanent move to Bloomfield Road, he penned an 18-month contract with the option to extend by a further year.

His only goal for the club came on his debut in an EFL Trophy encounter against Macclesfield.

Guy scored one goal during his 46 appearances for the club

He went on to make 22 appearances in his first season before playing another 24 times this season.

“This is a marquee signing for us in my opinion," Carlisle boss Bech said.

"We’re getting a lad who learned his trade at a top academy through his schoolboy life with Derby County.

"He was very highly thought of there and that eventually led to the move to Blackpool.

With the move to Blackpool it means he hasn’t yet played at this level, he’s always been one step up, but he’s more than ready for it.”

Guy becomes the tenth player to depart the club during this month's transfer window, joining Anderton, Jordan Thompson, Ben Tollitt, Ryan Hardie, Christoffer Mafoumbi, Adi Yussuf, Michael Nottingham, Rowan Roache and Emil Jaaskelainen.
