Tranmere Rovers have re-signed striker Iain Hume on a six-month contract.

The 31-year-old came through the youth system at Tranmere and made 176 appearances, scoring 37 goals.

The Canada international had been playing in the Indian Super League at Kerala Blasters, where ex-England keeper David James is head coach.

"I'm delighted Iain has agreed to join us, said boss Micky Adams. "He had a number of options but his passion for Tranmere was clear to see."

Hume, who also had stints at Leicester, Barnsley, Preston, Doncaster and Fleetwood, is the third arrival at Prenton Park this week after Adam Dugdale and Josh Thompson.

"He can score goals, he can open up defences and create chances for others and he's a handful for defenders," added Adams.
