Tranmere have signed Blackburn defender Ryan Edwards on a one-month youth loan subject to Football League and FA clearance.
The young centre-back has yet to feature for his parent club but made seven appearances during a loan spell with League Two side Chesterfield earlier this campaign.
Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore told the club's official website: "I'm really pleased to be able to bring Ryan in.
"With Ash Taylor suspended and Ian Goodison carrying a groin injury we are short of options at the back. Ryan has more than 30 games of Football League experience under his belt and has done well in his previous spells out on loan so I look forward to working with him.
"I'd like to thank Blackburn manager Gary Bowyer for allowing Ryan to join us."
