Tranmere extend Kennedy loan

Tranmere Rovers have extended the loan deal of Everton winger Matthew Kennedy by a further month.

The 19-year old joined Rovers in January and has made six appearances for the Sky Bet League 1 club so far.

Kennedy started his career with Kilmarnock where he made his first-team debut at the age of 16.

The Scotland U21 international played 14 times for Killie before joining Everton where he has since become a regular for the U21 side.

Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore said: "Matthew has done well since he's been here. He's quick and direct and is a handful for opponents.

"I think he can get better too. He's only young but he's learning quickly and hopefully will start to add some goals to his game.

"I'd like to thank Everton manager Roberto Martinez for letting Matthew stay with us."
