Wrexham manager Dean Keates is still playing a waiting game as he looks to bolster, but revealed he had seen the chance of signing a midfielder turned down earlier this week.

Keates has already been active in the January transfer window, signing Akil Wright to a two-and-a-half year deal after the midfielder impressed during a six-month loan deal from Fleetwood Town, while also bringing in striker Scott Quigley on loan from Blackpool until the end of the season, the latter making an immediate impact, scoring both goals on his debut in Saturday’s 2-0 win at Hartlepool United. The Dragons boss has been vocal about his desire to add more depth to his squad for the final push this season, and had been keen to bring in another midfielder recently.

Keates revealed his midfield target was keen to sign at the Racecourse, but that any deal had been scuppered as the two clubs had failed to come to an agreement. When asked if there was still a chance of the deal, Keates said: “There is still a possibility, he wants to join, he wants to come here but ultimately we couldn’t agree with his club, so we will see what happens.”

Keates was keeping his cards close to his chest in terms of January signings, but did reveal he was still confident of adding a few more options before next weeks’ deadline.
