Tranmere are set to complete the signing of MK Dons defender Ben Chorley.
Tranmere have completed the signing of MK Dons defender Ben Chorley, subject to a successful medical.
Chorley is set to sign a two-year-deal at Prenton Park, having impressed during a loan spell last season at Gillingham.
The 24-year-old becomes Ronnie Moore's third summer signing at Tranmere, following the arrivals of Antony Kay and Adnan Ahmed.
Moore, who is preparing his side ahead of their season opener at home to Leeds United, is looking to toughen up his defence, and he believes Chorley is perfectly suited to the role.
"I've been looking to bring in a dominant centre-half who will head the ball, is brave and will score goals," said Moore.
"Ben fits that description perfectly.
"He is very vocal, will demand the best from other players and wears his heart on his sleeve.
"I hope he forms a very good partnership with Ian Goodison and I'm looking forward to working with him."
Chorley made over 130 appearances for MK Dons, since joining in 2003 in a switch from Arsenal.
