MANAGER Andrew Thomas has succeeded in finalising a deal for Steve Tomassen from Tamworth to return to the Hollingsworth Group Stadium on-loan until the end of the season.
The 23-year-old put pen to paper on Friday night and, for the second time in the January transfer window following last week's signing of Leon Clowes from Bangor City, Thomas has secured the return of a former Wingmaker and Wrexham loanee to the club.
Chester-born central defender Tomassen is a product of Wrexham's Centre of Excellence and made his senior debut in the last league game of the 2010/11 season at Luton Town. A regular in the Reserves throughout his two-year apprenticeship, Tomassen was rewarded with the offer of a professional contract in 2012 and was loaned to Airbus in August 2012, where he made 28 Welsh Premier appearances, scoring six goals.
He was nominated for Welsh Premier young player of the season and was voted Airbus player of the season as he helped the club qualify for the Europa League for the first time.
Tomassen made a total of 43 appearances for Wrexham and featured in the FA Trophy final defeat to North Ferriby, before following his former manager Andy Morrell to the Lambs in search of regular first team football, and has scored four goals from his eight appearances for the Midlands outfit in the National League North this season.
Former Wrexham team mates Tomassen and Clowes will be re-united at the heart of the Airbus defence and both will add some much-needed height and presence at the back as the club embarks on the Welsh Premier's second phase.
