Liam Feeney has left Blackpool after three years

Feeney, whose last game for the Seasiders was against Tranmere in March last year, told the Rovers website: "I wanted to carry on playing my football at Tranmere Rovers. I enjoyed last season. Unfortunately it didn’t finish the way we would have all liked but we got very close.

“This is a great club to play for. I got a small taste of what it is like to play at Prenton Park in front of the fans and I can’t wait - they create a great vibe.

“I wanted to come back to make sure we finish the job off next season and win promotion.

“The manager has had great success at Tranmere for a number of years and I have only heard good things about him."

That manager is Micky Mellon, the former Blackpool player and Fleetwood boss back for a second stint at Rovers after spending last season with Dundee United in his native Scotland.
