Tranmere have bolstered their squad with the loan signing of John Johnson from Middlesbrough.
The highly-rated 20-year-old has agreed a loan deal at Prenton Park until 31st December.
Johnson, who made his debut earlier this season against Chelsea, is expected to go straight into the Tranmere squad for Tuesday's clash with Scunthorpe.
Rovers boss Ronnie Moore thanked his Middlesbrough counterpart Gareth Southgate for letting Johnson go out on loan.
"John is a talented young right-back who is comfortable on the ball and likes to get forward," Moore told the club's official website.
"He is a good passer of the ball who will get crosses into the box, and he is also capable of playing centre-back if needed.
"I'd like to thank Middlesbrough manager Gareth Southgate for allowing one of his most promising youngsters to join us for a month."
