TRANMERE Rovers are set to re-sign Liam Palmer until the end of the season on loan from Sheffield Wednesday.

The midfielder spent the first half of the season on loan at Prenton Park, starting every league game to help the Club to the top of npower League 1.

Manager Ronnie Moore said: "I've been delighted with Liam this season. He has been a model professional while he has been here and a credit to Sheffield Wednesday.

"He's formed a great partnership with James Wallace and more recently Max Power in the centre of our midfield and he has improved as the season has gone on.

"I think there is more to come from him too. He’s not scored yet but I think he has goals in his game.

"I'd like to thank Sheffield Wednesday and Dave Jones for allowing Liam to come back to us."

The move is subject to the completion of the necessary paperwork.
