Wrexham have signed Colchester United forward Dan Holman on a one-month loan, subject to international clearance.

The 24-year-old signed for Colchester in July from Braintree Town on a two-year deal but has not yet cemented his place as a first-team regular.

There is also extra competition at Colchester after they signed Cardiff City striker Rhys Healey on loan.

"I'm looking forward to playing again and the opportunity to come on loan to Wrexham was a good one," said Holman.

Holman made the step up to League One after impressing in the Conference for Braintree with 24 goals in 69 league appearances for the Iron.

If Wrexham receive international clearance in time, the striker could make his Dragons debut in Monday night's Conference Premier derby at Chester.

Colchester manager Tony Humes told the club website: "We spoke to Dan and said that we'd like to get him out to play some football, as he wasn't currently in our first team.

"We circulated his details for loan and Wrexham made contact with us on Thursday and we've agreed to let him go out, once that international clearance is received.

"We wanted to get him out at a good level, to make sure that it was a test and a challenge for him.

"I have personal history with Wrexham and they're a good club and I am sure they will look after him."
