Rovers complete Thompson swoop

Tranmere Rovers have extended the stay of on-loan Nottingham Forest defender John Thompson for a further month.

The right-back, who is the fourth Rovers have had on-loan since the start of last season, has so far played four games for Tranmere since joining as a replacement for the injured Robbie Stockdale, and Ronnie Moore's team have won every game he has played in.

Rovers home game against Blackpool on Friday was due to be the final game the right-back played, but his loan extension means he should be available for Tranmere up to the Christmas period.
