Tranmere return for Forest defender

The 25-year-old, who will be a free agent in the summer, spent time on loan at Prenton Park earlier in the season.

"It is fantastic to have a player of John's undoubted ability back at the club," Rovers boss Ronnie Moore said.

"He was magnificent for us earlier in the season and it is a great acquisition for us.

"When John was here we had the best defensive record in League One, so hopefully we can get back to that form quickly."
