Wrexham AFC are delighted to announce the signing of Devonte Redmond on a two-year deal.
The 22-year-old came through the youth system at Manchester United before making an impression last season while playing for promoted side Salford City.
Standing at 6 foot 2, the talented player who can also play up front or anywhere in midfield came up through the United ranks with the likes of Marcus Rashford, Andreas Pereira and Scott McTominay.
Devonte impressed at youth level and would regularly partake in matches for the Red Devils’ reserve side.
He eventually sought first-team football moving to Scunthorpe United on a season-long loan deal in 2017.
In January 2018 his parent club recalled him before he was eventually released in June of that year.
After a spell without a club he joined National League side Salford City in January 2019, making his debut against Eastleigh in February 2019.
Devonte scored twice in his 15 appearances, both winning goals in 1-0 victories coming against Aldershot and Harrogate Town.
Devonte was also involved in the National League play-offs playing in the semi-final victory against Eastleigh and Wembley show-piece win over AFC Fylde to earn promotion.
On signing, Devonte commented: “I’m delighted to get the deal done. Wrexham are club I have always followed due to the family ties I have here and I just can’t wait to get going.
“This is a massive club that has aspirations to play in the football league, minimum. The manager drew me closer to signing the deal because he is going to trust in me and I hope to add that bit of creativity he needs.”
Talking of family ties, Devonte is the son of a Wrexham AFC promotion winner in former wing-back Paul Edwards.
Speaking of this dad's influence, Devonte said: “I used to watch my dad out there on the Racecourse pitch so it’s a strange feeling in a way.
“It’s like it is written for me to come here and hopefully follow in my dad’s footsteps and achieve something big at Wrexham.”
