TRANMERE Rovers striker Franklyn Akammadu has been recalled by parent club US Alessandria.

The Serie C side has decided to cut short 20-year-old's season long loan spell at Prenton Park, meaning he will now return to Italy.

In a brief statement, Rovers said: "The club would like to thank Franklyn for all of his efforts during his time at Tranmere Rovers and wish him the best of luck for the future."
