In an effort to bolster their promotion hopes, Tranmere Rovers have announced the loan signing of Sheffield United player James Wallace.

The Liverpuddlian rejoins Rovers after making 36 league appearances for the club in a two year stint, before joining The Blades.

It marks the second time that Wallace has worked with Micky Mellon, who signed him on loan whilst manager at Shrewsbury Town. Mellon told the official club website:

“I’m extremely pleased, as is everyone at the football club, to be able to bring someone of James’s quality in.

“He will certainly help improve the quality of the group we already have, particularly during a period where we will have a lot of games.

“I can assure everyone that his mentality is to come here to help us win matches and play well so I’m delighted to have him in the squad.”

Wallace, who started his career at Premier League Everton, will be at Prenton Park until January 8th 2017 and will be hoping to solidify Rovers promotion push. The club have taken 8 points out of the last 12 and will be hoping to bounce back to The Football League after two years in the Non League system.
