Tranmere have extended the loan deal of midfielder James Wallace from Everton until the end of the season.

The 20-year-old joined Rovers in January and has made 12 appearances for the club, scoring his first goal in Tuesday's 2-0 win at Rochdale.

Rovers boss Ronnie Moore said: "James has done well since I've been here, so I'm delighted to be able to keep him.

"He's formed a strong partnership with John Welsh, gets up and down the pitch and is very comfortable on the ball."

Moore added: "I'm grateful to David Moyes for helping us out and hope we send James back to Everton as an improved player."
