SIGNED | Wrexham AFC sign Elliot Lee

Attacker pens three-year deal

8 July 2022

Wrexham AFC are delighted to confirm the signing of Elliot Lee on a free transfer, with the attacker signing a three-year contract at the Racecourse Ground until the end of the 2024/25 season.

Lee was available on a free transfer following his release from Luton Town, having spent the 2021/22 campaign on loan with Charlton Athletic.

The former West Ham United academy graduate is now the third new signing to arrive at Wrexham AFC this summer, following Jordan Tunnicliffe and Mark Howard through the door.

And on joining the Red Dragons, he said: “I'm absolutely delighted to sign. I'm so excited by the project at Wrexham; I've had a few chats with the manager over the last few weeks and I'm buzzing to get going now.

"I wanted to join somewhere that excited me - I had a few EFL offers but after hearing about the ambition of this Club, it was Wrexham for me. 

"I feel like I know what it takes to get promoted. We got back-to-back promotions at Luton; I joined them in League Two and left them in the Championship, so if I can do something similar at Wrexham I think we'll all be delighted."

Lee broke through at West Ham United and made his professional debut with the Premier League club in 2013.

After several loan spells, Lee joined Barnsley in 2016 before first landing at Luton Town the following summer.

He proved an integral part of the Hatters’ rise to the EFL Championship, playing 70 league games and scoring 22 league goals across their back-to-back promotion seasons.

He leaves Luton having scored 27 goals in 113 games for the Hatters in all competitions, while also spending time out on loan with League One clubs Oxford United and Charlton Athletic.

And on his signing, Wrexham AFC manager Phil Parkinson said: “We're delighted to welcome Elliot to the Club. He's a top player who will bring real quality in the final third of the pitch. 

"He's been involved in a successful team at Luton and we're really looking forward to integrating him with our squad in the coming weeks. 

"In all my chats with him, he's really understood and been enthused by what the Club is all about. That buy-in is just as important as his ability."
