His name also entered the running for the Doncaster Rovers job last month, as per the Daily Record, but the Yorkshire club have now turned to former player Richie Wellens.

Mellon managed Fleetwood Town from 2008 to 2012 and guided them to promotion to the Football League.

He then coached at Barnsley before joining Shrewsbury Town in 2014 and spent two years there, winning 42.4% of games.

Mellon then left the Shrews to take charge of Tranmere in the National League and won promotion to League Two via the Play-Offs in his first season.

The Merseyside club then made it back-to-back promotions a year later by beating Newport County at Wembley to book their place in League One.
