Iain Hume has completed a 10-year round trip after returning to Tranmere Rovers on a six-month deal.The 31-year-old striker chose to move back to Prenton Park after a successful spell in the Indian Super League with Kerela Blasters.
The deal remains subject to international clearance, but Hume has agreed to return to the club where he made 176 appearances and scored 37 goals between 1999 and 2005, despite reportedly receiving offers from Sky Bet League 1 clubs.
Rovers boss Micky Adams said: "I'm delighted Iain has agreed to joins us.
"He had a number of options with other clubs but his passion for Tranmere was clear to see when I met him.
"He can score goals, he can open up defences and create chances for others and he's a handful for defenders.
"He'll increase the competition for places up front and add to our attacking options for the second half of the season."
