The 23-year-old former Liverpool youngster left Bradford after the club agreed to settle his contract in March and ended the season playing for Dundee.

Threlfall, a former England Under-19 international, failed to break into the first-team at Anfield and spent time on loan with Hereford, Stockport and Northampton before moving to Valley Parade in 2010.

Shrimps manager Jim Bentley told his club's official website: "Robbie is a great lad with a good attitude and I am delighted to have him here.

"We wanted a left-back who is a good defender but can also get forward and I think he will fit into the side really well."

Threlfall added: "I know a couple of Morecambe players and, as soon as they started talking about the place, I knew it would be a great place to come to. It looks a great set-up and I wish the season was starting tomorrow."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
