Bury have signed Tranmere Rovers striker Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro on loan until the end of the season.

The 29-year-old heads to the JD Stadium in search of regular first-team football after being limited to substitute appearances in recent weeks.

Shakers boss David Flitcroft told the club's official website: "Jean-Louis is obviously a player I have worked with before.

"He is a player that loves football and loves to be involved in football. He's got a fantastic commitment to his game and has that pace, power and strength that supporters love to see.

"He's a player we have been tracking for a while and with him being out of the side at Tranmere we are delighted to have his services with us until the end of the season."
