Wrexham manager Dean Keates says he fought to land the signature of Coventry City starlet Jordan Ponticelli to guarantee his side goals between now and the end of the season.
Ponticelli has crossed the Anglo-Welsh border to put pen to paper on a loan deal that will see he remain at the Racecourse Ground until May after failing to leave his mark with League Two’s Tranmere Rovers.
The 21-year-old only turned out three times for Rovers during the first half of the campaign with Mark Robins, and most of the Sky Blues army, all expecting to hear good reports from Merseyside about the development of one of the club’s most adored youngsters.
“He is someone I had a look at and we are well aware of his capabilities,” said Keates, speaking to North Wales Live .
“First half of the season has had a little bit of a failed loan and hasn’t got as much game time as he wanted. The move is good for us, and it’s good for the lad – it’s not gone the way he or Coventry wanted when he went to Tranmere, so he’s raring to go.”
