Fleetwood Town midfielder Akil Wright has joined National League side Wrexham on loan until 5 January 2018.

The League One team also allowed the 21-year-old to go on loan last season, to Wrexham's league rivals AFC Barrow.

Fleetwood development squad head coach Paul Murray said: "It's a good chance for Akil to play first-team football."

Wright joined Barrow in October 2016 and remained at Holker Street until the end of last season, playing 26 times and scoring one goal.

He played in Wrexham friendlies against Cefn Druids, Louletano and Stafford Rangers as a trialist, showing his versatility at central defence and full-back.

"I have enjoyed my brief spell with the club, which has been something of whirlwind with games in Wales, Portugal and England so far!" Wright told the Wrexham website.
