Fleetwood Town can confirm that highly rated left-back Eddie Clarke has joined the club from Sky Bet League Two side Tranmere Rovers.
The 19 year-old put pen to paper recently, with his contract expiring at Prenton Park in May, with the club seeing off competition from a number of clubs for his signature.
Clarke featured in Rovers’ promotion winning season from the National League, culminating in victory at Wembley Stadium in the play-off final against Boreham Wood.
Clarke said on the move: “I am really happy to be here and I can’t wait to get going at such a great club like Fleetwood Town.
“I am a left-back who likes to get forward. I think my pace is a key attribute along with being agile, and I’m hoping to bring that to the team.
“I can see myself growing as a player and a person here and I can’t wait to meet the lads ahead of the new season.”
