Everton midfielder James Wallace has signed for Tranmere Rovers on a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 20-year-old midfielder played 18 games on loan at Prenton Park last season, scoring twice and clearly impressed enough to warrant a transfer.

Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore: “It´s a big signing for the club and I think we´ve got a very good player on our hands. He´s a leader, a talker and he´ll make an excellent captain for the club.”
