Tranmere Rovers have today announced the double signing of Larnell Cole and Devarn Green ahead of Saturday’s clash with FC Halifax Town.
The two players are additions that manager Micky Mellon feels can “isolate players” and provide “width” as he spoke to the club’s official media following their announcement.A comparison of the two signings (image: tranmere twitter)
He said: “I’d like to welcome Larnell and Devarn to the Club and we are looking forward to working with them both.
“We have been looking for players who can isolate people, give us a bit of width because we want to play with width, and create more chances for the front players.”
With winger Ben Tollitt out until early 2018, and on-loan Dylan Mottley-Henry returning to his parent club later this month, the signings were two much needed and important recruits.
24-year-old Cole, who has signed a deal until January 2018, brings with him an impressive career having featured for Manchester United having played in the Old Trafford youth side from 2009.
In order to accumulate more game-time, the midfielder from Manchester has featured for the likes of MK Dons, Shrewsbury Town and Iverness Caledonian in the past three years.
The free-transfer from Fulham played under current Rovers manager Mellon while at The Shrews and clearly impressed the 45-year-old to link-up once again.
Second-signing Devarn Green, an undisclosed signing from Stourbride at just 21-years-old has represented Blackburn Rovers and Cardiff City (loan) in the past after starting his career at Burton Albion.
What separates the youngster from Cole is his ability to play on either wing with his versatility bound to make him a popular addition at Prenton Park.
Both players have been made available to feature in tomorrow’s important fixture against Halifax Town where anything other than three points would make it one-win in five for the Super White Army.
