BEN TOLLITT has joined Wrexham on an initial short term loan deal from Blackpool.

The 24-year-old winger enjoyed a successful loan spell at The Racecourse last season whilst with Tranmere Rovers, and made the move to Blackpool in the summer following his release by the Wirral outfit.

But since making the switch to Bloomfield Road, Tollitt has not appeared for the League One club this term.

Wrexham have submitted a request for international clearance and hope to have Tollitt available for tomorrow's home game against Barnet.

Manager Bryan Hughes said: “I’m delighted that Ben is coming back to the club.

"I think it will give everyone a massive boost. The supporters and Ben had a bond last season, it gives the players and all the staff a big boost too.

“Ben was a target in the summer. I wanted to keep him at the club, he was honest throughout that process and said it was between us and Blackpool, and he chose to follow his heart and go to League One.

“When the opportunity has come up to bring Ben back to Wrexham, I jumped at it. We know exactly what he has to offer the team.

“I’m happy to get this done and hopefully the paperwork will go through in time for this weekend.”
