Chester City are hopeful of completing the signing of Tranmere Rovers midfielder Kevin Ellison on Monday.

Tranmere and the Blues finally agreed a fee for Ellison at the third time of asking on Friday after Rovers initially rejected two earlier bids for the 28-year-old.

Now City officials and Ellison are due to sit down and thrash out personal terms.

"The deal with Tranmere has been agreed, so we will now move on to the next step of the process, which is agreeing a financial package with Kevin and his agent," City chairman Stephen Vaughan told the club's official website.
