TRANMERE Rovers have confirmed they are still in talks with a number of “interesting” candidates over the vacant manager’s position at Prenton Park.

A statement on the club’s website said they have been carrying out an “extensive search” for a new manager for next season.

Rovers sacked former manager Ronnie Moore in April after he admitted to breaching FA rules on betting.

Assistant manager John McMahon took temporary charge at Tranmere after Moore was first suspended in February.

But the club – who will compete in League Two next season after their relegation – is looking to appoint a permanent manager.

Chief executive Jeremy Butler said:  “In line with our plans for a bright future, we have been carrying out an extensive search for a new manager for next season.

“The role of the next manager is wide ranging in terms of implementing a new ethos and structure at the club, as well as the primary aim of winning promotion.

“We appreciate the process is taking longer than some supporters had expected but we are working hard on ensuring we appoint the correct candidate.”
