- Wrexham targeted midfielder Powell
- Ex-Man Utd man joined Stockport
- Welsh side yet to sign a new player
WHAT HAPPENED? Stockport County confirmed the signing of the midfielder on a three-year contract as they prepare to kick off the League Two campaign with the aim of earning promotion after losing the play-off final last season.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The news will come as a blow for National League champions Wrexham, who were said to be after the free agent following his release from Stoke this summer. It is the third target the Welsh club have failed to land this week, having seen Max Power join a second-tier club in Saudi Arabia, where he will be managed by Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler, while Alfie May has also joined Charlton.
