Tranmere Rovers have today signed Portuguese winger Érico Sousa on a contract which runs until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old arrives at Prenton Park from League Two side Accrington Stanley where registration issues have meant he has been unable to feature for John Coleman’s side after joining in February.
The wide man began his career in the youth ranks at Barnsley and last season featured thirty times in the top flight in Slovenia with NK Celje before returning to England.
Manager Micky Mellon said of the signing: “Érico has trained with us for a few days and has shown plenty of promise.
“He’s a player I’ve known from my time at Barnsley and has good pace so will add something to the squad we already have here.
“With the injuries to Ben Tollitt and Jake Kirby we have been short of wide options, so Érico will boost us in that department as will the return of Jack Dunn following his lay-off.
“I’m grateful to the fans for the financial backing they’ve given us which has allowed this deal to happen”.
