Wrexham recruit international duo


Wrexham have bolstered their squad by signing two international players, one from the Faroe Islands and another who plays for Mali.

Boss Dean Saunders has recruited goalkeeper Gunnar Nielsen, 22, on loan from Manchester City and he could face Saturday's trip to Histon.

French-born Mansour Assomani, 28, has also joined the Dragons.

Assistant manager Terry Darracott said: "It was in everyone's interests that we register the lad [Assomani]."

Darracott added: "While we weren't looking to involve Mani in the short-term, it would be a bit silly not to be able to play him if the need arose."

Nielsen, who made his Faroes debut against Iceland on Sunday, moved to Eastlands a month ago as a free agent, having previously worked with Manchester City boss Mark Hughes at Blackburn Rovers.
