TRANMERE Rovers have signed midfielder Harvey Gilmour and former Premier League striker Ishmael Miller.

Gilmour, awarded EFL Young Player of the Month award in October 2018, made the permanent switch to Rovers from Championship promotion chasers Sheffield United and has signed an 18-month contract that sees him at Prenton Park until the end of the 2019/20 season.

Miller, who has three promotions to the Premier League to his name, including two Championship winners' medals and played 18 times this season for Oldham Athletic, will form part of Micky Mellon's squad until the end of the current campaign.

In an interview on the club's website, Mellon said: "Harvey is a young lad who has blossomed as both a player and a person since he has been here.

"I am excited about his development and he will continue to grow.

"I am sure we will keep on making him better and better.”

Regarding striker Miller, he said: "When he came available, we thought straight away that he is what we need, and he fits the bill perfectly.

"Ishmael provides a different option in attack and he will be a very good addition to the squad."

Harvey Gilmour has played for Rovers 23 times, scoring three times including two match winners against Morecambe and Macclesfield Town. On signing his Rovers contract, he said in an announcement on the club's website: "I am glad it is all sorted now, it is a massive Club and the focus is now on the rest of the season and reaching the Play-Offs.

"The gaffer brought me in last year and I have learnt a lot off the likes of Ollie Banks and so many other players in the squad.

"I have loved my time here; the gaffer has given me so many opportunities to play and I can’t thank him enough.

He continued: "I'd like to think winning the EFL Young Player of the Month award was a statement of intent and hopefully if I keep doing what I am doing, I can win the award again.

"I am focused on getting this team back to where they belong. We should be fighting to get promoted, we are as good as any team and if you look at the Lincoln game a couple of months ago, we played exceptionally well, and it shows how far the Club has come.

"I had to mature quickly but it is a completely different game compared to U23 football. I am thankful to Sheffield United for giving me the opportunity to sign for Tranmere Rovers."

Ishmael Miller said: "As soon as I heard the Club were interested, I was super excited.

"It is a massive Club, I remember the days when they were in the top leagues in England. I am going to do my best and help.

"We have a great team with some great players. There is a great atmosphere which is such an important thing.

"My goal is to try and get Tranmere in the position where I think we can be at the end of the season.

"My hopes for the rest of the season are to help get Tranmere where I think the Club can be, give my all for the team for the fans and the manager, if I do that and everybody else does that, and it looks like everyone is doing that, I think there are exciting times coming up."
