Daily Post 14/01/2022 Thomas Lewis

Wrexham AFC boss Phil Parkinson has confirmed the club's interest in a League One striker ahead of tomorrow's FA Trophy fourth round tie against Folkestone Invicta.

The Dragons have been linked with several top players since the winter transfer window opened at the start of January.

Parkinson confirmed today that Wrexham were already in discussions with "several clubs and agents" about transfers.

Players recently linked with a move to the Racecourse include Jay Mingi, Maidenhead United's on loan Portsmouth midfielder and Ollie Palmer of AFC Wimbledon.

But while the boss refused to speculate on the long list of names, he did admit that the reds were looking at one player in particular - Gillingham forward Vadaine Oliver.

Parkinson said: "He's a player we've looked at, but there's no bid gone in for him as yet.

"There's lots of players we're looking at, we're talking to several clubs and agents."

Speaking about Saturday's clash against Isthmian League side Folkestone Invicta, Parkinson said that although the FA Trophy isn't top of the list of the club's priorities it is still a competition the Dragons want to win.

He said: "Any game you go into as a manager or a player you want to win and we're exactly the same. We've been working incredibly hard in training this week."

"We had last weekend off so it's been a long break and we're all ready for action."

With tomorrow's game taking place behind closed doors due to Welsh Government restrictions, the news that full crowds will be able to return to sporting events from next Friday delighted Parkinson, whose side will be able to play in front of supporters again when Grimsby Town visit the Racecourse on Tuesday January 25.

"We're all very pleased (to hear about the return of supporters), there's nothing like a matchday - turning up at the Racecourse with a packed stadium and embracing the atmosphere," he said.

"It was disappointing to have to postpone the Solihull Moors game, but it's great that the game will now go ahead in front of what will be a terrific attendance I'm sure."
