New arrival at Prenton Park

Tranmere Rovers have today signed Wigan Athletic defender Roman Golobart on a one month loan deal.

The 20-year old is starting his fourth season at Wigan having joined from Espanyol in August 2009.

He spent the whole of the 2011-12 season on loan at Inverness Caledonian Thistle, helped them maintain their place in the Scottish Premier League and was voted Player of the Season by their supporters. 

Manager Ronnie Moore said: “I’m really pleased to bring Roman in from Wigan.

“With Ian Goodison injured, Ash Taylor picking up a knock at Aston Villa and Mark McChrystal still needing more games following his injury, we were short at the back so Roman is a welcome arrival.

“He’s a tall, dominant centre back who has good experience from his time in Scotland last season.

“Wigan rate him highly and I’m sure he’ll be a good addition to our back line.”

Roman is available for Saturday's home game against Colchester United and will wear number 23.
