Released Crewe Alexandra defender Adam Dugdale has joined League Two side Tranmere Rovers on an initial six-month contract, with the option of a further year.

“We weren’t prepared to offer him that [a contract] until the summer” – Steve Davis

That followed the cancellation of the
27-year-old Liverpool-born centre-back’s Gresty Road contract by mutual consent earlier this week.

“We weren’t prepared or in a situation to offer him that [a contract] until the summer,” Crewe manager Steve Davis told BBC Radio Stoke. “He’s got his family and his future to think about so we felt it best, with the cover we’ve got, to do it.”

Dugdale already had a previous five-game loan with the Birkenhead club last season, and therefore links up with former Port Vale boss Micky Adams and ex-Crewe winger Lee Molyneux at Prenton Park.

He made 141 appearances and scored six goals for the Railwaymen during his second spell with the club.
