Liverpool keeper completes Tranmere switch

Liverpool Reserves goalkeeper David Martin has joined struggling Tranmere Rovers on a months loan deal.

Tranmere, who find themselves firmly in the relegation zone of League One after 12 games, last week sacked both former Reds John Barnes and Jason McAteer from their management team.

With caretaker-boss Less Perry now in charge, the Wirral based side have their first choice keeper Luke Daniels suspended for this weekend’s clash against Brighton.

“I’m really pleased to be able to bring a goalkeeper of David’s quality in,” Parry told the club’s official website.

“He’s very highly rated and was one of the best goalkeepers in League One last season. He played a lot of games for Leicester City, keeping clean sheets in almost half of them.

“Saturday’s game is very important for us and with Luke Daniels being suspended we needed an experienced goalkeeper. David will give us that experience and much more as well.”

Martin, 23, joined Liverpool in 2006 from MK Dons but has yet to make an appearance for the first team with loan spells at Accrington Stanley and Leicester City.

He is, however, one of 28 Liverpool players in the Champions League squad for this season.
