JAY HARRIS is back at Wrexham for a second spell with the midfielder putting pen to paper on an 18-month contract.

The 32-year-old has signed a permanent deal, keeping him at The Racecourse until the end of the 2020-21 season, after leaving troubled League Two outfit Macclesfield Town.

Harris first joined Wrexham in 2010 and he made nearly 200 league appearances in midfield alongside current Reds manager Dean Keates, helping the club win the FA Trophy at Wembley in 2013, before leaving for Tranmere Rovers in 2015.

After helping the Wirral-club win back-to-back promotions from the National League to League One, starting May's League Two play-off final win against Newport County, he signed for Macclesfield last summer and he made 25 league appearances for the Silkmen.

Harris is delighted to be back at The Racecourse.

“Coming through the doors brings back a few memories," he said.

“Dean and I played together for five years here, and we had a good relationship both on the field and off it, and ever since we left we always kept in contact.

“But the past is the past, I’ve got a job to do again now I’ve come back here.

“I’m looking forward to it. I love playing football and to be back here is incredible.

“I don’t think I’ve changed much. I’ve aged a bit obviously, but I feel I can still do the same job as I did when I last here, which made me a fans' favourite – hopefully I can rekindle that relationship with the fans.”
