Joe Thompson: Set to swap Rochdale for Tranmere
Sky Sports understands Tranmere are set to sign Rochdale winger Joe Thompson.
Tranmere have been chasing Thompson all summer and they are now thought to have finally agreed a fee with Rochdale for the out of contract wide-man.
Thompson, who came through the youth ranks at Spotland, saw his contract expire earlier this summer, but as he is under 24 Rochdale are due a compensation fee for his services.
The 23-year-old is thought to have attracted interest from clubs in Scotland and abroad, but he is poised to move to Prenton Park.
Rovers boss Ronnie Moore is a big fan of Thompson and sees him as a key addition to his plans for the new season.
