Wrexham have signed a pre-contract agreement with Histon midfielder Nathaniel Knight-Percival.

The 23-year-old, who came through the trainee ranks at the Glass World Stadium, has made 225 appearances and scored 40 goals for the club.

Knight-Percival is manager Dean Saunders' first signing for next season and will move in the summer.

"I will be looking to get a few more in the bag in the next few weeks," Saunders told BBC Sport Wales.

Knight-Percival is likely to turn out at the Glass World for the final time in Stutes' colours for their crunch relegation match at home to Barrow on Saturday.


Histon chief executive Allen Soraff told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "Nat's always made it clear to us that he wanted to play full-time football, but I'm sure Wrexham have made him an offer we couldn't get near.

"We wish Nat well, he's been a great servant to Histon Football Club and he's also a lovely guy."

Knight-Percival is primarily a left-winger but has also been used up front, in central midfield and in defence.

Histon will receive a small fee from Wrexham because he is currently under the age of 24.

"We've negotiated a fee for Nat and while we could have gone to tribunal we're happy with what we've been offered," Soraff said.
