LLANDUDNO have made another splash in the transfer market with the loan signings of highly touted Wrexham prospect Leo Smith.

The midfielder joins the JD Welsh Premier League side on loan until January, and the Porthmadog native made an encouraging debut in Tudno’s 0-0 draw at Carmarthen Town on Saturday.

Manager Iwan Williams, said: “Leo is someone that I’ve tracked from a very young age given he’s from the same hometown as I am.

“He has worked incredibly hard over the last few years at Wrexham and was rewarded with a two year professional deal last summer by previous manager Dean Keates.

“Since then he has played nearly 30 games for the club and has gained invaluable experience in the process. Leo will come in and add competition in the middle of the park which is something we’ve been looking to address.

“He’s a naturally fit lad with bags of energy, he has a pass in him and an eye for goal, but he also possesses a bit of bite which will certainly prove vital given how tough the Welsh Premier League is so fits the profile really well for us here at Llandudno Football Club.

“I’d like to place on record my thanks to Wrexham manager, Sam Ricketts for allowing us to help give Leo some added experience which we hope will progress his already successful career at Wrexham in the near future.”

Smith is a product of the Dragons’ successful Academy programme and broke into the first team squad during the 2016/17 campaign.

His exploits with the National League leaders have earned him international recognition, with Smith capped by Wales up to U19 level.
