League One side Tranmere Rovers have signed Aston Villa striker Rushian Hepburn-Murphy on a season-long loan.

The 20-year-old, who has been capped by England from under-16 to under-20 level, played against Tranmere while on loan at Cambridge United last season.

A Villa academy graduate, Hepburn-Murphy has played 13 league games for the Midlands side, all as a substitute.

"Rushian is an exciting talent who we're really looking forward to working with," said Rovers boss Micky Mellon.external-link
