BOBBY GRANT could still have a future at The Racecourse.

The 29-year-old attacking midfielder has joined League One outfit Accrington Stanley on loan until the end of the season.

Although he is Wrexham's leading scorer with eight goals, Grant failed to make the squad for the previous two games before completing the temporary switch on Friday.

Grant initially arrived at the club on loan in November 2018 from Fleetwood Town and made the move permanent during the 2019 January transfer window before taking up the option of a contract extension last summer.

Reds' boss Dean Keates says he will assess the situation at the end of the campaign.

"It was a difficult one," said Keates.

"I can't speak highly enough of Bobby, I had a great relationship with him.

"But it is football. We part ways until the end of this season and all being well Bobby goes there and does really well for himself and Accrington.

"He is a great lad and I enjoyed working with him but we will cross the bridge at the end of the season whether he carries on at this football club next season or whether he goes elsewhere.

"But I wish Bobby all the best. We will speak to him over the next few weeks, keep an eye on his form and how many minutes he is getting.

"Hopefully it all works out for him there and we will see how it goes."

Keates says Grant had not asked to leave after falling out of favour and his loan move was secured after Accrington made an approach.

"Accrington came in for him," said Keates.

"There was no pressure off Bobby. He has not been a part of it the last few weeks and he has taken it on the chin, worked really hard and trained really well.

"It was the right thing for both parties at this moment in time; whether he is here next season, we will wait and see."

Grant, back at Accrington for a second spell, was not available on Saturday as his new side beat AFC Wimbledon 2-1 to go 17th in the League One standings.
