Okonkwo signed a three-year contract with Wrexham.

“We’re delighted with the signing. It’s such an important one for us,” Parkinson told the club’s official website.

Arthur was outstanding for us last year, and since the season finished we’ve worked really hard to secure the signing.

“It’s great credit to all the work that has gone on behind the scenes, because it’s never straightforward but we’ve always said it’s important to have perseverance to try and get your number one target – and Arthur certainly was that.

“It’s a great first signing of the summer for us.”
