Wrexham AFC teenager Jordan Davies joins Championship leaders Brighton


Staff reporter (Leader Live)

Wrexham youngster Jordan Davies has joined Championship outfit Brighton and Hove Albion for an undisclosed fee.

The highly-rated full-back, who had recently enjoyed a successful spell on loan at Bangor City, was recalled by Reds’ boss Dean Keates earlier this month and was an unused substitute during Saturday’s 2-1 win over Woking.

The 18-year-old has been regarded as one of the most talented scholars at Wrexham, having joined the club on schoolboy terms as a nine-year-old.

Davies, who has been capped by Wales under-17s, travelled to the Amex Stadium earlier today after agreeing terms with the Seagulls. It follows the departure of fellow academy graduate Johnny Smith, who joined Bristol City last summer.

In a statement on the club website, Wrexham said they had received a number of offers from various clubs for Davies, and the player was kept fully informed prior to deciding on a move to Chris Hughton’s side.
