Mike Fondop-Talom has set his sights on fighting for promotion with Wrexham after being unveiled as Sam Ricketts’ second signing of the summer, say The Daily Post.
The 24-year-old striker signed a two-year deal on Monday after leaving National League rivals FC Halifax Town.
Fondop-Talom is Wrexham’s second summer recruit as he follows former Torquay United midfielder Luke Young in joining the club.
Ricketts stated on Monday he was still looking to bring in more players, but felt the capture of Fondop-Talom represented a major coup for the club. And Fondop-Talom revealed he had turned down a number of Football League clubs to join the Dragons, and was focusing on helping the Racecourse side fight towards the top of the table.
“(I am) delighted to be here,” said Fondop-Talom.
“There was interest from (a few) Football League clubs, and some others in this division as well. I said to my agent what I wanted to do, I wanted to play in the League, but after really talking to Sam Ricketts, him letting me know about the ambitions of the club and them going for promotion, I thought to myself this is a good opportunity because next season I am hoping to play for Wrexham in the Football League.”
