Larnell Cole signs contract extension with Rovers

By Peter Tscherewik

It has been revealed that attacker Larnell Cole has agreed to extend his contract with Tranmere Rovers to the end of the 2017-18 season.

The 24-year old originally signed on a deal running to the end of January 2018, after joining in October 2017 as a free agent.

Cole has made ten appearances for the Super Whites to date, with his last coming against Woking on January 13.

The attacker has largely played out on the right side of midfield along with a couple of outings as a striker. He has scored two domestic goals for Rovers and will be hoping to extend that tally in the coming months.

Manager Micky Mellon knows Cole very well, having worked with him in past times at Shrewsbury Town and is ecstatic to have got this deal all sorted out.

He said: “We want to keep hold of good players and Larnell certainly falls into that category.

“We love the qualities that he brings to the group with the way that he plays.

“He’s different to the other attacking options we have, so it’s great to have that type of player with us.”

Cole has been sidelined with a hamstring issue in recent weeks, and it is unclear as yet as to when he will return to action.
