ADAM BARTON has become Wrexham's fifth new signing of the summer.

The centre midfielder has penned a two-year deal at The Racecourse after leaving Dundee United.

Barton began his career at Preston and played for Crawley, Coventry City, Fleetwood, Portsmouth and Partick Thistle before joining Dundee United in July 2018, and the 28-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Welsh Premier League side Connah's Quay Nomads.

On joining Wrexham, Barton said: “ I’m delighted to get the move all done and dusted. I’m really happy to be here at Wrexham.

“I like to get on the ball and start moves off, passing the ball, sitting-in in front of the back four. It’s up to me to get in the squad now and keep my place when the season starts.

“I have been speaking to Bryan Hughes for a while about the move, he really wanted me to come and I really wanted to be here, so it’s great to get it done.

“Bryan said that sitting in midfield is where he sees me playing my football here, where my best position is, so that’s what I’ll do for the team if and when I get a chance.”
