Mark Harris revealed a conversation with Bryan Hughes persuaded him to join Wrexham.
The 20-year-old attacker, comfortable through the middle or out wide, has headed north from Cardiff City on a season long loan.
Harris explained how the move to The Racecourse came about, saying: “It’s been coming now for the past couple of weeks.
“Cardiff rang me first to let me know that Wrexham were interested and then the gaffer rang and messaged me.
“Since I spoke to him I thought ‘this could be a good move to me’.”
Harris will now start training with the Reds ahead of the first game of pre-season against Welsh Premier League outfit Cefn Druids on Saturday.
He continued: “I’m happy to do it as early as it has been so I can get in and get amongst the lads.
“It’s a great club and hopefully I can make my mark by doing well for the team and the fans.”
