WREXHAM appear to have ended their interest in signing Swindon Town full-back Rob Hunt after bringing in Bryce Hosannah from Leeds United.

The Welsh club has signed the 22-year-old on a two-year deal, four years after he arrived at Elland Road from Crystal Palace.

With the arrival of versatile defender Hosannah, it appears unlikely now that Wrexham will attempt to go in for another right-back despite a lengthy injury to Reece Hall-Johnson.

The 26-year-old faces up to 10 weeks on the sidelines following a groin injury that he picked up against Solihull Moors earlier this month.

Phil Parkinson had previously stated that he would be searching for a right-back to cover for Hall-Johnson's absence, with the Welsh side reportedly seeing several bids for Hunt rejected in the past few days as Town stood firm.

With the last of those bids thought to have been turned down on Monday, Wrexham switched their attention to Hosannah - who spent last season on loan at Bradford City.

Speaking to the club website, Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson said: “I am delighted to welcome Bryce to the club. He’s a good addition to the squad.

“He’s a young player with pace and energy and we’re looking forward to working with him this season.”
