Moore has enquired about defenders, midfielders and strikers as he looks to improve his Rovers squad.

But the 60-year-old expects to have to wait a few weeks yet before he is able to bring some of his targets to Prenton Park.

He told the club's official website: "We've spoken to quite a few players already.

"We've talked to a couple of centre-backs who played regularly in the Championship last season, we've spoken to left-backs, central midfielders and strikers.

"But it's a waiting game at the moment. It's still early in the summer and a lot of players and agents are on holiday and keeping their options open.

"I expect we'll have a few players on trial throughout pre-season and we've approached managers of other clubs about long term loans as well."

It is understood former Barnsley defender Stephen Foster has agreed a two-year deal with Rovers, while ex-Sheffield Wednesday defender Julian Bennett and Rotherham striker Kayode Odejayi are other reported targets.
