Tranmere’s League Two rivals Grimsby Town are understood to have held talks with winger Josh Ginnelly following his release by Burnley.
Ginnelly is a free agent after leaving Burnley at the end of the season, but he has both National League and Football League experience thanks to loan spells. He has also won promotion two years running, once with Lincoln and once with Tranmere.
Grimsby are in the market for a winger and are understood to have made contact with the player’s representatives. It’s not known whether Tranmere or Lincoln have any interest in offering a contract to Ginnelly.
The winger has previously worked with Grimsby manager Michael Jolley and that link may help tempt him to Blundell Park.
‘Gino’ spent the final months of last season on loan at Prenton Park, saving his strongest appearance in a Rovers for the play-off semi-final against Ebbsfleet. He scored a vital goal to bring the game back to 2-2 before Tranmere went on to win the game in extra-time.
Seven days later, he made his tenth and final appearance for Rovers, starting at Wembley in the play-off final. He was one of three players to be substituted before half-time after being hit by a bottle, but his contribution to getting Tranmere back in to the Football League will always be appreciated.
He spent time on loan with Lincoln earlier this season in League Two having won the National League title the previous season at Sincil Bank.
