Tranmere Rovers have signed Rochdale midfielder David Perkins on an 18-month contract.

The 36-year-old worked with Micky Mellon when the Rovers boss was assistant manager at Barnsley.

Perkins helped Wigan win the League One title last season before leaving to join Rochdale, for whom he made 21 appearances.

"He will instantly become a key member of the team. He is a great addition," Mellon told the club website.
