Wrexham star Davies signs new long-term deal

0


JORDAN DAVIES has signed a new three-and-a-half-year contract at Wrexham, maintaining the midfielder at The Racecourse until the end of June 2025.

Former academy graduate Davies, 23, from Coedpoeth, returned to his home club in the summer of 2020 after leaving Brighton in the Premier League, putting the pen to a two-year contract.

He made his professional debut with the Reds last season and won the Young Player of the Year award after finishing the campaign with eight National League goals.

Davies picked up where he left off in that tenure, finding the back of the net nine times to help Wrexham enter the race for promotion, and he’s now committed to his long-term future for the club.

Upon signing his new contract, Davies said on the club’s official website: “It means a lot to me, especially to my family.

“We’ve been through a bit of a rough patch, but it’s finally good news and hopefully a light at the end of the tunnel.

“I think the project here is amazing and what can come of it in terms of the club’s potential growth was too good an opportunity to turn down.

“For all the guys, the fans matter a lot. But for me, as a local guy, it’s different – it hits harder when you win and it hits harder when you lose.

“I think we can definitely get out of this league, and Ligue 2 is easier to get out of in a lot of ways once you’re there. I can see us in League One in 3-4 years.

“I think from my point of view and from the club’s point of view we were on a similar page from the start, we just had to get the terms agreed and we both look up – can’t wait to trying to get the club there.

“Helping promote the Club is my first target now and personally and for the Club, getting promoted would mean so much. ”

Manager Phil Parkinson said: “It’s very important and great for us to have signed Jordan. He’s a very good player and he’s improving all the time.

“It’s really crucial for the Club to engage our best young players and make sure we keep them as we are trying to build something in the short and long term. We see Jordan as a central part of that.

“Thank you to the Presidents for providing the necessary funding to make this deal happen. I’m very, very happy and I’m sure the supporters will be happy too.

“That’s a statement because Jordan’s contract was coming to an end this summer and you’re still in a vulnerable position when you have a player whose contract is expiring. It’s the one we wanted to do because it shows that we are really serious in the short and long term, a real sign of intention.

“Wrexham is a club that is moving forward. We have excellent ownership, and everyone can see from the outside and inside that the Club is trying to get back to where it was. The support potential here is. a huge factor, and players want to play in front of full halls.

“There is a real attraction to playing for Wrexham right now and I think signing Jordan Davies is key to that.”
