Tranmere Rovers boss Micky Mellon is expecting to make some more signings this week.

The Whites are in the hunt for some acquisitions, as per a report by the Liverpool Echo.

Rovers are keen to bolster their squad this summer ahead of their upcoming League One campaign. They made their first signing of the transfer window yesterday by snapping up defender George Ray from League Two side Crewe Alexandra.

Ray, who is 25 years-old, has played in League One before with the Railwaymen so will add some experience into Tranmere’s ranks. He has played over 150 games for the Cheshire side.

Mellon’s main aim over the coming months will be to replace last season’s top scorer James Norwood, who has left Prenton Park for fellow third tier side Ipswich Town.

The 47-year-old has hinted at more signings, as per the Liverpool Echo: “With keeping Manny Monthe at the club, we have a great central partnership (after bringing in Ray) as part of a defensive base which developed last season and was the basis for many positive results”

We have been working very hard in order to find the right players for what we are looking for and we will be hoping to strengthen the squad further over the next few days”

Mansfield Town’s Danny Rose has been linked over the past couple of days so that is a transfer that Rovers could pursue. The ex-Bury and Barnsley forward has played for the Stags for the past three years.
