TNS have signed Wrexham midfielder, Steve Abbott, on loan.
Abbott is a fairly recent arrival at the Racecourse club, having signed from Team Bath during the latter half of the previous season. However, the 26 year old found first team appearances hard to come by at the Blue Square Premier outfit, and with manager Dean Saunders adding to his midfield options over the course of the summer, Abbott will clearly benefit from getting some first team football under his belt.
TNS may well look to use Abbott as a striker, a position Saunders has trialled using the former Wigan Athletic trainee in during reserve team matches. Whilst playing in central midfield for Team Bath, Abbott scored an impressive 30 goals in just 80 appearances for the University side.
It is not yet clear what the duration of the loan will be.
