Wrexham announce two major deals immediately after the January transfer window opens

Wrexham announce two major deals immediately after the January transfer window opens

Wrexham have made early moves.

The January transfer window is now officially open - and Wrexham have already announced two deals to get things up and running.

The Red Dragons are currently fighting for one of the three automatic promotion spots in League Two.

Phil Parkinson's side are in third place, level on points with second-placed Mansfield and five points behind leaders Stockport.

They face fourth-placed Barrow in a crunch clash at the Racecourse Ground on New Year's Day, with a defeat sending them out of those automatic promotion places.

It could be a big January transfer window for Wrexham, who have already been linked with an audacious swoop for Peterborough star and all-round EFL goal machine Jonson Clarke-Harris.

But their good form in League Two has created interest in their existing players, with Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney desperate to keep the core of their squad for the second half of this season and beyond.

Top scorer Elliot Lee, who has 13 goals from midfield this term, has been linked with a move to Championship side Birmingham.

But in a massive boost to Wrexham fans, Lee is going nowhere - with the club announcing at 12:01am on New Year's Day that the midfielder has signed a new long-term contract until 2027.

And that was the only good news, with cult hero and star striker Paul Mullin also committing himself to the club for a further three-and-a-half years.

Both Reynolds and McElhenney were quick to react to the news, with Reynolds wishing Wrexham fans a Happy New Year and McElhenney writing: "Good start to 2024."

Speaking to Wrexham's official website after the news was announced, Lee said: "It means a lot.

"When I signed 18 months ago, there were high expectations but not I even saw just how well it was going to go. I'm delighted to be extending my stay with Wrexham."

And Mullin commented: "I'm unbelievably happy and grateful to extend my stay at Wrexham. Since signing for the club, I've loved every single second. It's not just become my club, but my whole family also."

While Wrexham may do some significant business in bringing players in this month, committing Lee and Mullin to fresh terms could be the biggest pieces of business of the lot.
