The Football League have lifted the transfer embargo imposed on League Two side Morecambe.

The embargo came into effect in January after wages at the club exceeded the maximum 60% annual income limit.

The decision was made after the sale of the Shrimps' Christie Park ground to the supermarket chain Sainsbury's.

Vice-chairman Graham Hodgson said: "We would like to thank the Football League for their sensible and pragmatic view of the situation."

Morecambe have been hit by a series of lengthy injury lay-offs, with Craig Stanley being added to the list this week with a broken metatarsal.

And Hodgson said the lifting of the embargo will be a massive boost to manager Sammy McIlroy.

"We have liaised with Sammy on a daily basis about the situation regarding the embargo.

"He has been working hard on identifying a midfield player to come in on loan after the recent injuries to Craig Stanley and Fraser McLachlan which have left us low in numbers in that department," said Hodgson.
