Gunnar gets new deal and loan

Popular Faroese goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen has signed a one-year contract extension to his current deal and will now join Tranmere Rovers for six months on loan.

The 24-year-old made a dramatic debut away to Arsenal last April, stepping off the bench when Shay Given injured his shoulder to keep a clean sheet. The Emirates remains his only senior appearance.

The return of Joe Hart from a loan at Birmingham and Stuart Taylor’s new deal means that there is plenty of cover between the sticks at senior level, and the move to the League One side will allow Gunnar a sustained run of first-team football.

He is set to step straight into action in tonight's friendly against Nottingham Forest at Prenton Park.
