Wrexham AFC are delighted to confirm Tyler French has put pen to paper on a new deal, adding the option of an extra year to the 12 months he is already committed for.
As confirmed in the retained list, the Club had already taken the option to extend defender French’s contract for the 2021/22 season.
And the 22-year-old former Bradford man, who originally signed on transfer deadline day in January, has now signed a new deal to include the option of an extra year at the end of this season. The contract extends French’s potential commitment to the Club beyond his previous deal, as we look to build a promotion-winning squad.
And the Suffolk-born full-back is delighted to be on board at an exciting time for the Football Club.
“Everyone’s got a fresh start now, under the new gaffer, and I feel like it will be good for everyone – especially myself,” he said. “Being here from the start of such an exciting project, I’m looking forward to it massively.
“It’s very exciting times. There’s a good group of lads already here, and with the gaffer obviously looking to bring in a number of new players, given his experience there will be more quality coming too.
“[Phil Parkinson and Steve Parkin] have been great with everyone. I’ve had good conversations with both of them, and I’m excited to work with them.”
French made 17 appearances in his debut campaign with Wrexham, appearing at both centre-back and right wing-back.
And he was pleased to be back on the training ground, with the Wrexham squad having reported to Colliers Park this week after the summer break.
French added: “I’m excited. It was great to be back in training for the first time on Tuesday, to be with the lads, and I’m looking forward to getting going again.
“I managed to get away over the summer, which was good, but I’ve been working hard to keep myself fit.
“The first day back at training was a tough day, but it’s great to be back in the group and it’s a good environment at the moment.”
