DEVONTE REDMOND has vowed to excite supporters and provide the creativity that Wrexham lacked last season.

The 22-year-old midfielder turned down the offer of a new contract at Salford City and has signed a two-year deal at The Racecourse.

Despite challenging for promotion in 2018-19, Wrexham only scored 58 goals in 46 National League games and Redmond believes he can make a difference in the final third.

"I just want to add a bit of quality to the team," said Redmond.

"I want to add some goals and create goals; hopefully be that creativity that maybe was missing a little bit towards the end of last season.

"I will work hard for the lads, the fans and the manager; hopefully excite them and show what I can do."

Former Manchester United youngster Redmond was released by the Premier League giants last June and he joined Salford City in January, making 15 appearances and scoring two goals as the Ammies were promoted via the National League play-offs.

On his decision to leave the club, Redmond said: "You have got to feel happy and feel wanted with the deals that they offer and the vision that they have for you.

"It was difficult to see myself being there next season.

"When I came here and seen the gaffer, I was happy with what he said and he gave me confidence that I can be a vital part of the team.

"It was important to hear that. Straight away I got a positive vibe from the manager and I am just happy that we have got it done."

Redmond has turned down the opportunity to play in the Football League but he is focussed on helping Wrexham join Salford in the fourth tier.

"I wouldn't say I am gutted because I know I have got time in my career to get that done," said Redmond.

"Obviously I want to do as well as I can and I just felt this is the best path for me to go down, and be able to express myself the best I can.

"The manager has shown he has trust in me and I will go out there and do it for him.

"The aim is to help the club get promoted. Wrexham were so close last season but my aim is to help push the club over the line and get them into the Football League.

"It was good to win promotion with Salford. I came in for the last few months and it was a bit of a whirlwind.

"It was a good day but that has gone now. I have just got to focus on Wrexham."

Redmond's father, Paul Edwards, helped Wrexham clinch automatic promotion from Division Three in 2002-3 and he has kept a close eye on the Reds' fortunes.

"I have always known what a big club Wrexham is because my dad was there," added Redmond.

"I have always followed the club and it is kind of surreal to be stood in the stadium. I can't wait to get going."
