Colwyn Bay will have midfielder Tom McCready for the rest of the season after AFC Fylde agreed this week to his request to have his contract terminated.
The 26-year-old has been with Bay on loan for the last couple of months, but has now signed full forms following his release.
McCready joined Fylde in the summer after spending two seasons with League Two Exeter City, but he has only made 11 appearances for National League side this season, the last being against Tranmere Rovers in December, and wanted regular football which the Seagulls can provide.
Previous to joining Exeter the Everton youth team graduate had spells with Altrincham, Chester and Morecambe and also had a season in America. His experience will be important as the Bay face a hectic period of two games a week until the end of the season.
