Wrexham dodged a bullet by not signing Swindon Town man in January

Earlier in the season, Wrexham was connected to a move for Saidou Khan, a midfielder for Swindon Town.
Football Insider claims that Wrexham investigated a deal for the fellow League Two player before to the January transfer window.

Earlier this winter, Khan, 28, chose to remain at the County Ground after the deadline.

But given that he will now be sidelined for the remainder of the season due to injury, it is perhaps for the best that the Red Dragons decided against signing him.

Wrexham’s winter objective ‘plagued’ with injury
Saidou Khan is out for the season, according to Swindon Advertiser reports from interim manager Gavin Gunning. I am aware that fans have been critical of Khan’s efforts, but you can see that his performances have suffered greatly as a result of the injury he has been dealing with for a little while.

Khan had non-league stints at Tooting & Mitcham, Maidstone United, and Chesterfield before joining the Robins in 2022.

He has been a regular for the Wiltshire outfit in the middle of the park since then and has made 70 appearances in all competitions, chipping in with two goals and four assists.

His injury is a shame for both him and Swindon and hopefully he can return back strong for next term.

The Gambia-born man would have given Wrexham more competition and depth in midfield. However, he would have faced a real battle to get into their starting XI ahead of the likes of Andy Cannon and Tom O’Connor.

It would have also been a blow if Phil Parkinson’s side signed him and then he was sidelined until the summer.

Khan is still obviously under contract at Swindon and the Welsh side would have had to fork out a transfer fee to lure him to the Racecourse Ground so it could have been a waste of money for them.

Wrexham have been shrewd with their recruitment since their promotion from the National League last year.

They have adapted well to life in the Football League and are aiming for promotion to League One.

They are currently sat in 3rd place and are in the top three along with Stockport County and Mansfield Town. The Red Dragons beat the latter 2-0 last time out after a brace by striker Paul Mullin.

Next up for Wrexham is an away trip to Doncaster Rovers this evening as they look to keep their momentum going.
