Tranmere Rovers have strengthened their squad by announcing the signing of midfielder Liam Feeney on a season long loan from Blackpool.

33-year-old Feeney was voted the Seasider's Player of the Year last season and will give manager Mike Jackson another experienced option in the centre of the park, following the summer departures of David Perkins and Neil Danns.

Speaking to the club's website about the signing, Jackson said: “He brings great experience and good options to the team in the final third. Liam had the highest number of assists across all three leagues last season, and he is a great signing and adds more competition for places in the team.

“We need experience in the final third and he will bring a calmness to that area. I have said before the final third is the hardest area of the pitch and he will prove to be a good asset.

“A lot of time and effort has gone into making this move happen. Tranmere Rovers is an attractive football club to come and play for and we should never come away from that.

“Liam comes across very well and he is hungry to succeed. He has the ability to play off both the left and right-hand side, and he also played wing back last season too.

“He is a bit behind the rest of the team in terms of fitness, but we will be working hard with him. Liam is a great addition to the team and we are looking forward to working with him.”
