Tranmere Rovers Football Club have announced two signings on transfer deadline day.
Midfielder, Ali Crawford, joins on loan from Bolton Wanderers, where he made 24 appearances this season.
Crawford, who has also represented Doncaster Rovers in League One, and Hamilton in the SPL, will add further competition in the midfield area, and has previously worked with manager Keith Hill.
Boss Hill said, “Ali is very creative and he works exceptionally hard. He can press and play on the front foot and he can play as number ten or a number eight.
“He complements our midfield. We needed to strengthen in that area of the pitch, to make sure that we have got the numbers and experience for the 21 league games that we have got remaining.
One-time England international David Nugent, 35, has scored 153 league goals during his 19-year professional career.
The experienced striker, who has represented and scored for England, joins the Club from Championship outfit Preston North End.
Nugent has played the majority of his career in the Premier League and the Championship, and has scored more than 150 goals for teams such as Leicester City, Derby County and Burnley.
Speaking about his new striker, Keith Hill said: “David is a brilliant signing for the Club and I have got to thank the Chairman for all the signings we have made this month.
Meanwhile, Tranmere has signed left-back Calum MacDonald on a permanent deal.
MacDonald, 23, spent the first half of the 2020/21 season on loan from Barrow, making 24 appearances, but will now stay at Prenton Park until the summer of 2022.
