Vaughan excited to get going at Prenton Park

30 January 2020

Forward James Vaughan is looking forward to getting started at Tranmere Rovers after he completed a loan move to the Club from Bradford City.

Vaughan, 31, has switched to Prenton Park until the end of the 2019/20 campaign and becomes Micky Mellon’s third January recruit following on from Peter Clarke and Alex Woodyard.

Having spent the first half of this term captaining Bradford, where he scored 11 goals for the Bantams, he links up with Rovers, where he returns to Merseyside after starting out at Everton.

Vaughan is eligible to make his Rovers debut in Saturday’s Sky Bet League One fixture away to Bolton Wanderers.

And the Birmingham-born player is excited to pull on a TRFC shirt and help his new side climb up the table. 

He said: “I’m really happy to be here, so to finally get it done, I’m looking forward to getting started.

“There’s some good characters here that I’ve played with before, some big characters. But I’m experienced and hopefully my experience will help the team and get the results we need towards the end of the season.

"Everyone wants to play at the highest league they can, and I enjoyed League One the last time so I'm hoping I can have the same success again. 

“He (Micky Mellon) didn’t have to convince me, I knew what it is about, and I knew what was needed. I’m just looking forward to getting going and helping the team out.

“I hope to bring a few goals to the team, along with that a bit of success for us."
