Defender To Join Tranmere

Posted: Wed 18 Jun 2014

Michael Ihiekwe signs for Rovers

Michael Ihiekwe has today agreed to join Tranmere Rovers on a two-year contract.
The 21-year old centre back’s deal will come into effect on July 1st and he will join up with Rob Edwards’ squad for pre-season training two days later.
Ihiekwe, from Liverpool, came through the youth system at Wolverhampton Wanderers and signed his first professional contract three years ago. 
He spent the second half of last season on loan at Cheltenham Town, making 13 appearances for the Robins.
Manager Rob Edwards said: “I’m delighted to be able to bring in Michael. 
“He’s a very quick footballer, he reads the game well and is a player with lots of potential. He’s ambitious to play at a higher level and hopefully he will achieve that aim with us.
“He has come through a good youth system at Wolves and can play in the middle of defence and at right back so he gives us good options."
Michael, pictured above wearing the new training top which is now available from the Club Shop, added: “I’m very happy to be here. The Manager has told me about his plans and they made me excited to join. I’m looking forward to working with him.”
Michael is Rob Edwards’ third new signing this summer following the arrivals of Eliot Richards and Matt Gill, while Jason Koumas and Jake Kirby have extended their contracts with the Club and Sam Ramsbottom and Liam Davies have signed their first professional deals.
Season tickets for 2014-15 are on sale in the Club Shop and at
