Tranmere sign Liverpool's Antwi

Tranmere Rovers

Tranmere Rovers have signed the 20-year-old Liverpool defender Godwin Antwi on loan until January.

Antwi, who was born in Ghana and has a Spanish passport, has made over 40 first-team appearances during loan spells away from Anfield.

Rovers boss Ronnie Moore told the club's website: "Godwin is a very talented young defender who we've been watching for some time.

"I jumped at the chance of bringing him in to play right-back."

Tranmere is a good club and it will be a great experience for me

Moore added: "He is comfortable on the ball, already has Football League experience from his time at Hartlepool and he will add quality, strength and pace to our defence.

"Hopefully we will be able to keep him beyond January."

Antwi, who signed for Liverpool from Real Zaragoza in 2005, said: "I'm very happy to be here; Tranmere is a good club and it will be a great experience for me.

"I'm looking forward to meeting my new team-mates and some hard training ahead of the season."

He will be available for Rovers' pre-season friendlies at home to Bolton and Blackpool, on 29 July and 2 August respectively.

Antwi is Tranmere's sixth signing of the summer, following the arrivals at Prenton Park of Gareth Edds, Edrissa Sonko, George O'Callaghan, Bas Savage and Luke Waterfall.
