Former Dundee United striker, Steven Fletcher, has signed for Welsh big-spenders, Wrexham.
The 36-year-old was a free agent, having agreed a deal to leave Tannadice following United’s relegation to the Championship.
The ex-Scotland international weighed up his options – one of them being retirement – and has now decided to join EFL new boys, Wrexham, who are owned by Hollywood stars, Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney
Fletcher, who scored 10 goals for United, has signed a one-year contract.
He said: “Hopefully I can bring a lot of experience. I’m 36, I’m still fit and still raring to go.
“One of the biggest selling points was the ambition of the club, and if I can help with that then great.
“I don’t think you can not see what has been happening at Wrexham – it’s been a great experience for the fans, players and owners so hopefully we can continue that.”
Welcome to Wrexham, Steven Fletcher!
The experienced striker signs a deal with the Club until the end of the season.

Wrexham manager Phil Parkinson said: “I’m really pleased with the addition of Steve to the squad. He’s missed football through pre-season but he’s trained today with the lads and it’s good to have him on board.
“His pedigree speaks for itself, and he’s played most of his career at a very high level. He’s an excellent professional and that’s really important to fit in with the group here.”
