The 22-year-old, who has scored nine goals in 16 games during a hugely successful loan spell with the Glovers, has agreed a two-and-a-half year contract and moves for an undisclosed fee.

"Obviously I am delighted to sign permanently at Yeovil Town," he told the club's official website. "I have really enjoyed my loan spell here and I am looking forward to scoring more goals for the club."

Manager Gary Johnson added: "I am very pleased that Paddy has joined us on a permanent contract. He has been fantastic for us since joining on loan and will add to the quality we already have in the squad.

"The directors, management, players and fans all wanted Paddy to stay with us and I am delighted to have secured his signature."

Madden's move was announced just hours after his double helped Yeovil record a 3-0 win over Leyton Orient at Huish Park.

The Irishman moved to Carlisle from Bohemians 12 months ago but made just eight starts for the Cumbrians before being loaned out to Somerset.

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
