Abbott is set to sign for Wrexham

Dean Saunders is set to make midfielder Steve Abbott his 11th signing since taking over as Wrexham manager.

The 26-year-old is to sign an 18-month contract after joining from Blue Square South side Team Bath, the club affiliated to the University of Bath.

The England Universities midfielder has graduated from his teaching degree and is to move nearer his Liverpool home.

Abbott, who has been training with Wrexham, could make his debut against Mansfield in the FA Trophy on Saturday.

He has also played in a few reserve-team games and is awaiting clearance from the Blue Square Premier and the Football Association of Wales.

Saunders replaced Brian Little in the Racecourse hotseat on 2 October and has inspired Wrexham up the Blue Square Premier table.
