Wrexham AFC confirmed the loan signing of pacey forward Omari Patrick from Bradford City earlier. 

Patrick, 23, can play across the front three and has made 31 senior appearances for Bradford City – including six matches in all competitions this season.

Having been training with the club during the past week, he could make his debut against Yeovil Town at the weekend – pending international clearance – having been on loan at the Glovers last season.

Patrick, the son of 1994 Commonwealth Games gold-medal winner Adrian Patrick, also watched the FA Cup replay at Rochdale on Tuesday night.

And on signing for Wrexham, he said: “I’ve been wanting to come out and get some game time. I had talks about coming here maybe a month or so ago, but it didn’t happen so I’m glad that it has happened now – I’m excited to start playing.

“I’m very direct, I like running with the ball so hopefully I can bring a little bit of pace into the side.

“From what I’ve seen of the boys, I really like it and I can see myself fitting in well. I’ll just try the best I can to help us climb the table.

“Everybody I’ve met at the club has been new to me, but they have been very welcoming – I’ve got a car school going already, so it’s good.

“First and foremost, I need to look at myself as a Wrexham player now – even though I’m a Bradford player – [rather than look too far ahead]. I’ll definitely put the team first and hopefully get as much game time as I can.”
