Forward Morgan Ferrier can’t wait to pull on a Tranmere Rovers shirt after he became the Club’s ninth summer signing and says manager Micky Mellon had a big part to play.
Ferrier completed his transfer on Thursday for an undisclosed fee from Sky Bet League Two outfit Walsall and has agreed a two-year deal at Prenton Park.
The 24-year-old Londoner is available for Saturday’s opening day fixture at home to Rochdale in Sky Bet League One after his move from the Saddlers.
And Ferrier admitted that boss Mellon played a decisive part in him making the switch to Tranmere, where he will wear the number 10 shirt during his stay on the Wirral.
Speaking to TRFC’s official website, he said: “I’m delighted to get it over the line and sign for such a massive Club.
“The biggest thing to get the deal over the line was the manager has worked with such good strikers, he’s worked with the likes of Norwood last season, Jamie Vardy in the past, Andy Cook, who I worked with at Walsall, are all quality strikers who get 20 plus goals so he knows how to get the best out of his attackers and plays the right football so hopefully he can get the best out of me.”
“Micky showed interest in me earlier in the window and then it got over the line and I want to say thank you to the gaffer and everyone behind the scenes for getting it done.
“I’ve played against Tranmere in the League Cup last season and in the pre-season game. They have a massive stadium, a massive fanbase, good players so I can’t wait to get going and work hard.”
