Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Liam Palmer is set to remain on loan at Tranmere for the rest of the season.
The 21-year-old has impressed for the League One leaders and is
set to return to Hillsborough in January.
But Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore told
BBC Radio Merseyside
that talks have taken place to
extend his stay at Rovers.
"We've spoken to Sheffield Wednesday and we're hopeful that, very soon, it will be agreed that he'll be here until the end of the season," said Moore.
"He's been fantastic and he's got a little bit of freedom now that James Wallace isn't playing [because of injury].
"He's got himself forward, although there's no reason why he can't do that when Wallace plays. When he's played with Wallace, he's tended to be the one that's sat in midfield and let Wallace dictate, but they're both decent players."
Palmer has played 24 times for Tranmere, who are top of the table on goal difference and face seventh-placed Swindon at the County Ground on Friday evening.
