David Raven is set to ferry across the Mersey and sign for Tranmere Rovers.
Tranmere Rovers are close to completing a swoop for highly-rated young Liverpool defender David Raven.
The 20-year-old began his career with Rovers as a schoolboy before signing for The Reds for £25,000 when he was just 14.
An England youth international, Raven has made four first team appearances for Liverpool, and he will now link up with the Birkenhead club for the remainder of the season.
Tranmere boss Brian Little told the club's official website: "David is a quality young player that we have been able to sign from a Premiership club to strengthen our squad.
"He is a versatile player who can play anywhere along the back four. We have a good squad here that I am happy with and David adds quality to that."
Raven is currently nursing a slight ligament strain, although it is expected that he will be fit to join Rovers before the deadline passes on Tuesday.
