Wrexham can confirm the Club have take up the option in Dior Angus’ contract to extend his current deal by an additional 12 months.
Angus’ contract extension means the striker will now stay at the Club until the end of the 2022/23 season.
Signed on transfer deadline day last February, the former Barrow forward has scored seven goals for the Red Dragons since his arrival.
His initial 18-month contract included the option for an extra season, and the Club have elected to take up the option to secure the 27-year-old striker’s services.
And Angus – who returned from nearly two months out through first injury and then illness, when he stepped off the bench at Notts County earlier this month – is pleased to be extending his Wrexham stay.
“I’m delighted. It’s a big Club and I just want to get back out on the pitch some more, and achieve that goal of promotion at the end of the season,” he said.
“It’s nice that the manager has showed some faith in me. I want to repay it by getting out there and scoring more goals but we’ve got a good squad so you just have to be patient, and take your chance when it comes.
“It’s been a really enjoyable year at Wrexham. It’s one with a difference, for obvious reasons, but the stand-out thing has been the support. It’s just incredible. It’s appreciated by all of the lads and hopefully they’re back inside the Racecourse Ground as soon as possible.”
On retaining the striker’s services for an extra season, manager Phil Parkinson added: “We’re pleased to take up the option on Dior’s contract for an extra season.
“He’s had a frustrating time through injury and illness, but with his contract now sorted early in the transfer window, we are now focused completely on getting Dior back up to speed, and ensuring he plays his part in the rest of the season.”
