Wrexham Move Closer To Signing Championship Midfielder

Wrexham are now moving closer to the signing of Jamie Lindsay from Rotherham United, according to Nathan Salt of Mail Sport.

The Welsh side are still pushing to get a deal for the midfielder over the line before the deadline tonight and although the two clubs remain apart on the valuation, they are moving closer to an agreement.

Lindsay has featured merely 13 times for Rotherham this season, starting just eight of those games. The Scottish midfielder has made 152 appearances for the club since signing from Ross County in 2019 for an undisclosed fee.

Wrexham have already announced the signing of Luke Bolton from Salford City and Jack Marriott from Fleetwood Town today in what is shaping up to be a busy deadline day for the National League champions.

A potential deal for the Millers midfielder could cost more than £300,000 according to reports, which would make the signing the biggest deal in the club’s history, beating the previous record held by Ollie Palmer after he signed from AFC Wimbledon.

Rotherham are currently rock bottom of the Championship, nine points away from safety with a game in hand. Lindsay has been playing on the right-hand side of a midfield three as of late alongside Sam Clucas and Christ Tiehi.

Wrexham have already managed to convince the likes of James McClean, Steven Fletcher and George Evans to drop down the divisions to be part of the project being built by Hollywood pair Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds. Paul Mullin is also a high-profile signing from the past who dropped down and went on to be a major success in Wales.

Phil Parkinson’s side are currently second in League Two, five points behind the leaders Stockport County with a game in hand. Their next game is against Salford City away from home on Saturday, which could be Lindsay’s debut if a deal is successful.

Writer’s View

Lindsay is a strong midfielder who could easily play at a higher-level Championship side and would shine if he dropped to League One. The decision to sign a player of that quality is a smart decision by Wrexham, and it’s only likely to strengthen their chances of gaining promotion this season.

With just five points between them and Stockport, the signings they’ve made today alone are enough to bridge that gap and possibly put them ahead of the league leaders in the coming months. Recruitment has been smart in recent years for the Red Dragons, and it’s those wise decisions that are seeing a rise to prominence as quickly as they are.
