Who are Tranmere Rovers set to sign in the summer? Who's set to leave? In this Tranmere Rovers Mad special, we have a look towards June and July when Brian Little will be hoping to make a number of changes, I'm sure.


Since the beginning of the 2004/05 season, alot of players have left Tranmere with not many coming back in, and I should think that it will be the other way around this summer.

List of departed players in last 12 months:

Ryan Taylor (Wigan Athletic)
Iain Hume (Leicester City)
Chris Dagnall (Rochdale)
David Beresford (Released)
Gary Jones (Released)
Tyrone Laron (Released)
Eugene Dadi (Released)
Alan Navarro (Released)
Neil Ashton (Released)
Theo Whitmore (Released)
Russ Howarth (Released)
Paul Hall (Released)
Simon Haworth (Retired)

List of Players in:

Sam Aiston (Shrewsbury)
Steve Wilson (Macclesfield)
Chris Greenacre (Stoke City)
Delroy Facey (Oldham)

So, since the beginning of the 2004/05 season, around 13 players have left Tranmere Rovers FC, and been replaced by just four permanent players.

Only Calvin Zola, Chris Greenacre, Danny Harrison, John Achterberg (all to 2007) and Steven Davies (2008) have contracts beyond this season so therefore expect more of the same as once again, I'm sure alot of players will be leaving. The difference however, is that this summer they will be replaced.
