Tranmere Rovers' Akpo Sodje has been sent out on loan to Macclesfield Town, where his brother Efe Sodje is assistant manager.
The Rovers forward has not played for the Sky Bet League One club since November and has not scored in a competitive match since March of last year.
Akpo Sodje moves to the non-league club on an initial one-month basis.
Assistant manager John McMahon, in charge because of Ronnie Moore's suspension, told Tranmere's official website: "Akpo needs to play matches and this move will give him that opportunity.
"It's a club he should settle into quickly - with his brother Efe being on the coaching staff - and I wish him the best of luck there."
