Wrexham fans urge Preston's Louis Moult to re-sign in celebrity takeover

2020 has been bizarre enough without even thinking about a celebrity takeover at Wrexham – but here we are.

Actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney are both pursuing a deal for Wrexham in a rather baffling takeover, but they want to make the club a ‘global’ force.

Fans will have to vote on the takeover bid, but it seems likely that the Deadpool and It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia stars will be in charge at the Racecourse Ground.

This story means a lot to many connected with Wrexham, including Preston striker Louis Moult given his history with the club.

The 28-year-old spent the 2014-15 season at Wrexham, smashing 23 goals in 51 games to earn his big move to Scotland with Motherwell.

Moult is currently out injured at Preston, and is still on the road back to fitness having suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament injury in August 2019.

Preston fans hope to see him back in action soon, but Wrexham fans now want to see him make a bold move back to North Wales to be the marquee signing of the takeover.

Moult branded the takeover ‘exciting times’ for Wrexham, and he was bombarded with comments telling him to re-join the club – something that may not be all that wild given that his contract at Preston expires next summer.
