Tranmere have signed Chelsea defender Ben Gordon on a one-month loan deal.

The 19-year old left-back is a third year professional at Chelsea having joined them from Leeds. He has represented England at under-17 level and has been a regular in Chelsea's reserve side this season.

Rovers manager Les Parry said: "Ben is a talented defender who has a lot of potential. With Zoumana Bakayogo and Aaron Cresswell suspended for the game at Brighton on Saturday his signing means we don't have to play someone out of position."

He added: "I'd like to thank Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti for allowing Ben to come on loan to us."
