Former Bolton Wanderers and Wigan Athletic forward Kaiyne Woolery will be a League Two player this season after penning a deal with Tranmere Rovers.
The 25-year-old has joined the Prenton Park side and moves from League Two champions Swindon Town.
Woolery made 24 appearances for Wanderers between 2014 and 2016, scoring three times.
He later moved to the Latics but played only once for the DW Stadium outfit, before having a spell in the first half of 2017 at Forest Green Rovers.
He then moved to Swindon that summer and scored 14 goals in 111 matches for the Robins, as Richie Wellens’ side were awarded the League Two title last season when the campaign was curtailed in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
Woolery is now in the same division as his former club, Bolton, who Tranmere play on December 19 at the University of Bolton Stadium on on January 23 at Prenton Park.
Speaking to the club website after joining Tranmere, Wollery said: “I’m really pleased the deal is sorted now.
“This is a place I’ve been meaning to come to for a while so I’m happy to finally be here.
“Tranmere is a very big club and obviously recently won back to back promotions.
“Last year’s relegation shouldn’t really have happened so hopefully I can come here and help us get another promotion.
“I spoke to the gaffer he just said what he is wanting to achieve this season and I think you can see by some of the signings already that the squad is looking strong.
“I’m an explosive player, I’m quick and I like to play on the shoulder. I know a few of the lads already which always makes it easier to settle in.
“Tranmere is always a tough place to come for the opposition so I’m looking forward to getting started now.”
