Stevenage chase Tranmere midfielder

Rovers not keen on selling Lucas Akins despite interest from Boro

Tranmere have rejected a transfer request from Lucas Akins as he looks to tie up a move to Stevenage, according to reports.

The 23-year-old is said to be keen to push through a move but Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore is determined to keep the midfielder at the club.

“We have told them he’s not going anywhere. Their valuation of him doesn’t match ours,” Moore is reported to have said.

“I’d have to go out and find a replacement and there isn’t anybody like-for-like out there.”
