“RELEASE ROW: Wrexham star stays on contract after admin error!

Wrexham’s Red-Faced Moment: ‘Released’ Star Still Under Contract with Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney’s Side

Wrexham’s summer transfer window has already thrown up a surprise twist, as it’s been revealed that a player previously announced as released is still under contract with the club. Jordan Tunnicliffe, a centre-back who joined the Red Dragons in the summer of 2022, was one of eight players axed by Wrexham in May. However, an administrative error has meant that Tunnicliffe’s contract actually has a year left to run.

According to reports, the mistake occurred when Tunnicliffe’s initial contract was drawn up, with the expiry date incorrectly listed as June 2025 rather than June 2024. As a result, the former Crawley Town defender is now in negotiations with Wrexham to come to a resolution.

This blunder could have significant implications for Wrexham’s transfer plans, as the Welsh club looks to build a strong squad ahead of their debut season in League One. With the official opening date of the summer transfer window fast approaching, the club will be keen to sort out this issue as quickly as possible.

Speaking to Mail Sport, Wrexham confirmed that they are aware of Tunnicliffe’s contract dispute and have referred it to an independent determination. While the exact details of the situation remain unclear, one thing is certain: Wrexham’s transfer window has just gotten a whole lot more interesting.

Tunnicliffe’s career with Wrexham has been marked by injury problems, which have limited his appearances for the club to just 41 games. Despite this, Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson labelled the centre-back as an "immense character" after his initial release.

Wrexham’s promotion to League One marks a significant milestone for the club, and fans will be eager to see what transfer business the club can get done over the coming weeks. With Tunnicliffe’s situation still unresolved, it’s clear that the club’s summer plans are far from set in stone.
