Wrexham Football Club can now officially confirm the signing of attacker Bobby Grant from League One side Fleetwood Town. 

The 28-year-old has penned a short-term loan with the club making him a Wrexham player until early January 2019. 

The paperwork was agreed on Friday afternoon, but the deal was too late for his consideration in the match day squad against Leyton Orient on Saturday afternoon. 

However, we can now confirm that his international clearance has been granted ready for his possible inclusion for Tuesday evening's trip to Barrow and the paperwork has this morning been rubber stamped by both the National League and the EFL. 

Bobby began life with Accrington Stanley breaking through the youth ranks before signing professional terms in 2006. The Scouse striker made his debut in May 2007 on the final day of the League Two season in a 3-1 defeat to MK Dons.

In 2010, he moved on to Scunthorpe United in the Championship making his debut against Oldham Athletic in the League Cup, his Championship debut came against QPR. 

In 2012, he spent time on loan with former club Accrington, grabbing three goals in eight games before joining Rochdale, where he had spent time on loan a year beforehand.

His first league goal came against AFC Wimbledon in a 2-1 win, the first of 15 in League Two that year.

Grant earned a move to Blackpool in 2013 in the Championship before departing in the summer of 2015 and making the short hop across to Fleetwood.

His Cod Army debut came against Southend United on the opening day of the League One campaign, whilst his debut goal came against Port Vale at the end of September 2015, going on to make over a century of appearances in League One for the club.
