Wrexham have signed Ben Tollitt on an initial short-term loan deal from League One side Blackpool.

The 24-year-old forward is already well acquainted with Wrexham after his loan spell with the club last season when he put in some impressive displays while on loan from Tranmere.

Following on from his return to the Whites, he was released and signed for League One club Blackpool in the summer.

Manager Bryan Hughes commented: “I’m delighted that Ben is coming back to the club. I think it will give everyone a massive boost. The supporters and Ben had a bond last season, it gives the players and all the staff a big boost too.

“Ben was a target in the summer. I wanted to keep him at the club, he was honest throughout that process and said it was between us and Blackpool, and he chose to follow his heart and go to League One.”

Talking more about Ben’s surprise return, the Dragons manager said: “When the opportunity has come up to bring Ben back to Wrexham, I jumped at it. We know exactly what he has to offer the team.

“I’m happy to get this done and hopefully the paperwork will go through in time for this weekend.”
