Tranmere Rovers have announced the signing of Aston Villa defender Janoi Donacien on a six-month loan.
The 20-year-old signed a two-year contract with the Premier League side earlier this summer after featuring for the under 21’s.
He was named on the bench against Sunderland and also in Villa’s FA Cup tie against Sheffield United.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Rovers manager Rob Edwards said: “Janoi is a player I’ve watched a number of times for Villa’s Under-21s.”
“He’s a good defender who is very athletic and will give us extra strength in depth at the back.
“I’d like to thank Paul Lambert and Aston Villa Football Club for allowing Janoi to join us,” he concluded.
