Hollywood A-listers Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney hand Wrexham transfer funds BEFORE takeover is completed

HOLLYWOOD stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have pledged to invest money into Wrexham's team despite having not yet taken over the club.

The two A-list actors confirmed towards the end of 2020 that they are set to become the new owners of the fourth tier Welsh side.

And while the takeover has not yet been finalised, McElhenney has taken to Twitter to confirm that he and Reynolds have donated funds for the club to utilise before the end of the January transfer window.

He said: "Update: the @Wrexham_AFC takeover is still not 100% official and unfortunately it appears the handover will not be complete before the transfer window closes.

"So Ryan and I have made a donation to the Club to allow them (us?) to make some moves.

"Up the town! #WrexhamIsTheName."

McElhenney is best known for playing Ronald 'Mac' McDonald on the American comedy series It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which he also created.

Meanwhile, Reynolds is known for a number of film roles including Deadpool and The Proposal.


Wrexham currently sit ninth in League Two, just three points off the play-off spots.

Back in November, the Wrexham Supporters Trust released a statement about the Hollywood stars' takeover which read: "Subject to final agreement, league and FA confirmation – the RR McReynolds Company, LLC will take 100 per cent control of Wrexham Football Club Limited from the WST.

"Both parties will now proceed with finalising the details of the takeover, and we will update Wrexham supporters as soon as we can.

"As Wrexham supporters, we would like to wish them the very best of luck in charge of our Football Club and look forward to what the future brings."
