It would appear we’ve signed him from Forest Green. As confirmed by the player himself

He’s a central midfielder who has played 20 times this season for Forest Green so far this season.

He’s never scored a goal in English football, so I expect him to be more of an engine.

Potentially a good signing, I am guessing Hughes has an injury that is going to keep him out for a while. It appears that he has left FGR by mutual consent so if he is coming here I assume it is a short term contract...

From what I can gather, he’s a very skilful player who has struggled at league 2 but absolutely ran the show last season. Great signing

Sure Cooper stated he was going to France to look after his family. Their fans believe that Cooper was chatting a load of toff as he has been overlooked this season after starring last season for them.

Potentially very good signing if true!

Been reported that it was a false Twitter account that kicked this story off.

So only time will tell if it's false news as Trump would quote,so step back and wait to see how the mop flops.

Unless his account has been hacked, then it looks official:

He said:
First of all a massive thanks to @FGRFC_Official and the fans I had a great season and beautiful finish with the promotion at wembley last season and all the best to the team. Now I’ve joined @TranmereRovers I can’t wait to star this new challenge 🙏🏾🙌🏾

Looking at his followers, they're all Rovers fans. Players usually follow eachother on Twitter and not a single FGR player on there.

Best to just wait on this one.

The twitter feed has been liked by Nichola Palios, so do we assume there may be something in this afterall?

Exactly what we need, breaks up play and gives it simple. He was one of the best in the DM role last year.

Looking at the FGR fan forum, very positive comments on both signings. Couple of remarks about attitude and fitness re Traore but nothing to make me worry. Could be the best signing of the season!

Has to be positive and Cooper is one of those managers who can get the wrong side of any player.He looked good against us at Wembley but we will rarely play sides that are as bad as we were that day

Not a Banks type player but nonetheless a good signing if he shows any of his Wembley form

Good signing but, for me the question is, we can find money to sign Drissa Traore and not Ollie Banks, who has been sorely missed since his departure IMO?

Maybe on the back of Alabis fee .Keep money to one side and then pay less than we thought .After all it was closer to our valuation than theres (chester)

Very happy with this signing. Just the kind of player we need. Will add something if we get him to match fitness

Totally agree it is very hard to see1. Wallace being fully match fit anytime soon
2'Wallace staying fit for any great length of time.
Sad but time to move on

It’s not about signing the player it’s about paying him , we weren’t paying all of Banks wage when he was here.

Banks is used to league 1 wages, Traore is used to national league wages.

Can't remember him against us, maybe because I had my head in my hands. People seem to be raving about him so fair play.

Sounds like a good signing and now has a week to train with the players, I too cant remember him in the wembley final a standout player for me was their left back spraying the ball around but we did give him all the time and space that he wanted but looked a good player.
