Godwin Antwi has taken a short trip across the Mersey to join League One side Tranmere Rovers on loan until January 2009.

The Ghana born reserve team defender, who joined Liverpool from Real Zaragoza in 2005, spent a season long loan at Hartlepool United last season.

Godwin is a very talented young defender who we've been watching for some time. When I heard he had become available on loan I jumped at the chance of bringing him in to play right back.

He is comfortable on the ball, already has Football League experience from his time at Hartlepool and he will add quality, strength and pace to our defence. - Tranmere manager Ronnie Moore, Liverpoolfc.tv

Jack Hobbs has signed for League One outfit Leicester City on a season long loan until May 9, 2009.

The former Lincoln City defender enjoyed a loan spell at Scunthorpe United last season and is looking forward to his spell with Nigel Pearson's side.

Leicester showed their interest and I had no hesitation in coming here. This is a massive club with a good manager and top class Premier League facilities.

I want to help this club get back to the Championship at the first time of asking. - Jack Hobbs, Liverpoolfc.tv
