Tranmere Rovers hope to extend Michael O'Halloran stay

Michael O'Halloran, the 21-year-old Scotland U21 international, has been at Tranmere Rovers since the 22nd of December. His loan was originally supposed to run to the 6th of January but it seems that Rovers manager Ronnie Moore is keen to extend the deal.

Since joining, O'Halloran has made seven appearances for Tranmere in all competitions. He has only scored one goal for them, his first ever professional goal, coming against Portsmouth in a 2-2 draw on December 8. O'Halloran has also assisted one goal, that one came in an 2-1 FA Cup win over Chesterfield. All seven of O'Halloran's appearances have been starts.

Tranmere are set to lose 19-year-old Wolves loanee Jake Cassidy to his parent club and will be hurting without his 11 goals in 25 matches. Wolverhampton Wanderers want time to assess their young forward and Tranmere don't want to wait around. Speaking about the situation, manager Ronnie Moore said:

"I have spoken to Bolton about Michael and hopefully we can keep him for another month. Everything should be okay. I'm just waiting for their manager to come back to me."

O'Halloran's last appearance only lasted 45 minutes as he was reeling from an illness. Despite that, Tranmere won that match 1-0 and remain top of the League One table.

"To be fair, Michael should not have played. He was up all night ill. He was tired and lethargic which is not like him. Give him a pat on the back for having a go."
