By Josh Bunting

Northern Ireland international Luke McCullough has joined Sky Bet League Two club Tranmere Rovers on loan until January.

The Portadown man has started just 16 league games for League One's Doncaster Rovers over the past two seasons, dogged by troublesome knee ligament injuries.

Consistent football since February brought the 24-year-old back into the the international fold and he even featured off the bench against Costa Rica in June.

Rovers manager Manager Micky Mellon told the club’s website: "We're delighted to bring Luke into the group.

"We needed to bring up the numbers in the squad and we feel that Luke has the quality that we want to add to the squad. He has experience at international level and the league above as well as being a versatile option in a couple of positions.

"We would like to thanks Grant McCann and Doncaster Rovers for allowing Luke to join us until January."

McCullough goes straight into the Tranmere side for tonight's clash with Mansfield.
