The 19-year-old defender starred at centre-back as Rovers established themselves as surprise leaders of League One, but an abductor injury has curtailed a loan spell that was due to end in January.

Gibson was rewarded with a new four-year contract on his return to Teeside this week, and Moore is confident a deal can be done for him to boost to Tranmere's promotion push when he is back to full fitness.

"He's desperate to come back and we're desperate to have him," said Moore. "He's been absolutely fantastic for us and I'd like to think that we have been for him.

"He's signed a new four-year contract at Middlesbrough so I'd like to think that's obviously (because) he's proven he can play at this level.

"I would imagine that Tony (Mowbray, Middlesbrough boss) is going to push him more next season to get him into that side.

"We'd like to bring Ben back until the end of the season, there's no doubt about that, and the boy wants to come."

eah, that'll do nicely. Guess they're feeling pretty flush after the World Cup and see a few successful years ahead with our new manager. Get Vidal in asap now, and let's get things back on track.

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.
