Wrexham AFC are delighted to announce the signing of defender Callum McFadzean from Crewe Alexandra.
The left-back has put pen to paper with the club on a two-and-a-half-year deal, through to the summer of 2024.
McFadzean becomes the second signing of the transfer window, joining our record transfer Ollie Palmer at the Racecourse Ground.
And speaking in his first interview with the club, McFadzean revealed it was a no brainer for him to join the club.
He said: “The project and the ambitions for the club are clear and I want to be part of this journey.
“I hope that many successes come from this.
“I’ve had some good chats with the Gaffer and what he’s wanting to build here is a massive plus.
“I can’t wait to put the shirt on and get out there and play for Wrexham.”
The 28-year-old left-back began his football career with Sheffield United, and was part of the team that reached the FA Youth Cup Final in 2011.
He made his professional debut for the then-League One side in 2013, and has gone on to make more than 100 Football League appearances – including promotion-winning spells with Bury and Plymouth. He also signed for Phil Parkinson’s Sunderland.

He said: “The ambition that the club has shown over the last couple of days is great and it’s great to be a part of it.
“I saw on social media the average attendance and it’s a massive boost knowing as a player you’ve got that support behind you.
“Keep getting behind the boys and enjoy the ride.”
McFadzean will take the number three shirt, recently vacated by Jamie Reckord’s departure to Boreham Wood.
He is the second signing in the transfer window for manager Phil Parkinson, and he revealed he’s pleased to get McFadzean over the line.
Parkinson said: “Callum’s a player that brings versatility to the squad and he's a player that has promotions on his CV with Bury and Plymouth.
"He's a good addition to the squad, I'm looking forward to welcoming Callum to the club and working with him."
