BOBBY GRANT has endured a frustrating season and he can't wait to have "that buzz back" about playing football matches.

The 28-year-old midfielder, who can also play in attack, is out of favour at Fleetwood Town and has joined Wrexham on loan until January.

Out of contract in the summer, Grant is not in manager Joey Barton's first-team plans at the League One club following a disagreement and he has been training with the U18s.

Grant, who was saw high-flying Wrexham's 11 game unbeaten run come to an end against Leyton Orient on Saturday, jumped at the chance to join on loan and is looking forward to making his debut at Barrow tomorrow night.

"I am glad to get it done," said Grant. "I spoke to the manager at the start of last month, he asked me if I fancied coming in and it was only when I got here on Saturday that I realised how big the club actually was.

"I played against Wrexham once before for Accrington and I can't wait to get going, and hopefully help the team stay in touch with promotion.

"I am really looking forward to Barrow and, if selected, I will do everything I can to help Wrexham win the game.

"To have that buzz back about looking forward to a game and if the manager thinks I am ready to play then great.

"If not then I am there to help the team because you don't get anywhere with individuals, it is about team effort and we will be going to Barrow to get the three points."

Grant, who has played for the likes of Accrington, Scunthorpe, Rochdale, Blackpool and Shrewsbury, only made six appearance for Fleetwood this season and last featured in September.

"It has been a bit of a frustrating time but that is in the past now," said Grant. "It has been through no fault of my own.

"I know a lot of players will say that but when a certain manager has certain ways and says certain things to you in front of the team, it is what it is.

"For me it was a no brainer to come here.

"Mr Barton is what he is and when the manager here spoke to me to come, I jumped at the chance."

Grant has no qualms about dropping into the National League and he is eager to play his part in the Reds' promotion challenge.

"It is new for me and I can't wait to get going," said Grant.

"This club shouldn't be at this level and it was only on Saturday when I came to watch, I realised the size of it.

"Hopefully I can come in and help Wrexham get back to where they should be."

Grant, eligible for Saturday's FA Cup tie with Newport County, would be open to extending his stay if everything goes well at The Racecourse.

"It is about coming in for a month, enjoy the football, get to see what the club is about and help Wrexham win matches," added Grant.

"That is my only focus at the minute.

"I said to the manager when January comes we will assess the situation.

"If it goes well from both parties then I am more than happy to sit down and speak with Wrexham but we will cross that bridge when we come to it."
