Tranmere Rovers have today completed the loan signing of central midfielder Mark Wilson from struggling Championship side Doncaster Rovers.

Doncaster, who won promotion to the Championship from League One last season via the play-offs, have allowed Wilson to join Tranmere on a one month deal, despite the midfielder playing a pivitol role in that promotion winning side, as well as playing eight games for the Keepmoat Stadium side so far this season.

Wilson joins at a time when Tranmere are in desperate need of some players, with midfielders Steve Jennings, Antony Kay, George O'Callaghan and Adnan Ahmed all unavailable for the weekend game at Yeovil, whilst defenders Ryan Shotton and Ian Goodison are also missing for Tranmere.

An attacking minded midfielder, Wilson, who will wear the number 27 shirt for Tranmere, started his career at Manchester United, where he made a handful of appearances before joining Middlesbrough in 2001.

At Middlesbrough, Wlison failed to hold down a regular first team place and spent time on loan at a number of clubs, including Stoke and Sheffield Wednesday, before joining FC Dallas in America in 2005.

He returned to England fourteen months after crossing the Atlantic Ocean, playing non-league football before joining Doncaster on a free-transfer where the 29-year old has made over 50 appearances.
