Wrexham AFC are pleased to announce midfielder Dan Jarvis has signed for the club on a permanent transfer from Stoke City.
The 21-year-old creative midfielder, who played for the Potters at the Racecourse in pre-season, has signed an 18-month contract with the Dragons.
Jarvis – who worked under former Wrexham player and coach Kevin Russell during his time with the Potters’ academy – has been in a regular in their Premier League 2 side this season.
And the midfielder is relishing the opportunity to make his mark at the Racecourse.
“I can’t wait to get playing football and give the fans something to shout about,” he said.
“It’s a brilliant bunch of lads and a really good standard of football and, honestly, I think we can get back up the table.
“Kevin Russell’s been brilliant for me, I’ve had him as a coach for four or five years, and he’s taught me so many things. He’s probably the main reason I’m at Wrexham now.
“Pressure is a privilege; I’m really looking forward to the task and I can’t wait to get started.”
On the signing, manager Dean Keates explained Jarvis is a player he was watched closely for some time.
And he believes the 21-year-old has the credentials to go on to enjoy a Football League career.
Keates said: “I’ve watched him play six or seven times; he’s an attacking midfielder, he creates things and on the technical side he moves the ball well, sees things and creates opportunities for other people.
“From what I’ve seen of him in training so far, he scores a fair few decent goals too. He’s a very intelligent football player and can bring a lot of versatility to the team. I’m looking forward to working with him.
“Rooster thinks the world of him and, of course, knows everything about this football club and what the fans want.”
The paperwork for Dan's transfer wasn't completed until this afternoon, so while it has all been submitted and his International Clearance requested, we will have to wait and see if his ITC is received in time for him to be available for Saturday's game.
