TRANMERE Rovers have signed Liverpool goalkeeper Shamal George on loan until January.

He came on as a half-time substitute in Rovers friendly with Fleetwood Town on Saturday.

Wirral-born, he has been at Liverpool since 2009 and was included in their first team squad for their 2016 pre season tour of the USA.

The young shot stopper gained some Football League experience with Carlisle in August 2017, making four appearances for The Cumbrians.

Manager Micky Mellon said: "We are delighted to bring Shamal into the group on loan.

"From the 45 minutes that he played on Saturday you could see his ability as a goalkeeper and the confidence that he has.

"We are looking forward to seeing more of what he has to offer and helping him grow as player here at Tranmere"
