Centre-back Sid Nelson says he only had his eyes on a Tranmere Rovers return after he completed a permanent transfer to Prenton Park following last season’s successful loan spell at Prenton Park.
The 23-year-old returns to the Wirral on a permanent two-year deal after spending the second half of last term on loan at TRFC from Sky Bet Championship club Millwall.
Nelson played 10 games in a Tranmere shirt, including the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off final victory over Newport County under the Wembley Stadium arch, as Rovers secured a back-to-back promotion up to Sky Bet League One with their 1-0 triumph.
Nelson always wanted a Rovers move and is delighted to get the deal done which sealed his Prenton Park move.
He said: “It’s the only place that I wanted to come back to especially after the win at Wembley, as soon as I walked off the pitch, there’s only one place I wanted to come back to and play my football and that was here.
“After the Wembley game there was only one place I wanted to play my football next season and I just wanted to get it done really quick, it took a bit of time but I’m up here now and that’s the main thing.
“I’m glad I’ve got a place to call home now and I can concentrate on my football.
“There was a good connection between the players and the fans and that’s one thing you enjoy as a footballer when you have that connection, it’s good to be back, I’m raring to go and I can’t wait to have another two years here.
“It was my first promotion and I was buzzing. I’m over the moon to be back.
Nelson is confident that Tranmere can be competitive in Sky Bet League One, with former Premier League sides Sunderland, Bolton Wanderers and Portsmouth all to visit Prenton Park over the next campaign.
He added: “With the old faces who were here last season, I can’t wait to see them, and all of the staff. I can’t wait to have a season now in League One.
“There’s some massive clubs in the league, some big away days but the main thing is to be competitive in the league which I think that we will be, we’ve still got the main core of players as we did last season, so we’ll be competitive and give it a right good go.”
