Tranmere Rovers have today completed the signing of 24-year-old midfielder James Wallace on loan from English Football League One side Sheffield United until January 8th, 2017.

Wallace began his career at Premier League Everton, making one appearance for the Goodison Park club in the Europa League against Sigma Olomouc.

After a number of loans from Everton, Wallace then arrived at Prenton Park, initially on a temporary basis which was turned into a permanent move after impressing with his dynamic midfield play.

During his two-year stint at the Club, Wallace became a popular figure with his all-action game and made 60 appearances, scoring four goals.

After leaving Rovers in the summer of 2014, he joined League One side Sheffield United and towards the end of last season, he linked up with current Tranmere boss Micky Mellon during a loan spell at Shrewsbury Town.

Mellon said of the signing: “I’m extremely pleased, as is everyone at the football club, to be able to bring someone of James’s quality in.

“He will certainly help improve the quality of the group we already have, particularly during a period where we will have a lot of games.

“I can assure everyone that his mentality is to come here to help us win matches and play well so I’m delighted to have him in the squad.”
