Wrexham have confirmed that out-of-favour Derby midfielder Robbie Savage will not be joining the club on loan.

Dragons chairman Geoff Moss told the club's official website: "It looked likely we would have been able to bring in Robbie on loan.

"The player was keen on the opportunity and it seemed to be within our finances to allow us to bring him in, but unfortunately there seems to have been a problem, which means the deal will now not go ahead."

Savage has failed to hold onto a regular first-team berth at Pride Park this season, with his last outing coming in the 1-0 home defeat to Southampton on August 23.

The 33-year-old former Wales international, who has also been attracting the interest of League One side Brighton and League Two side Port Vale, was believed to favour a move to his home-town club in search of regular first-team football.

Moss continued: "It's a shame for Robbie, who was all for the idea, and we certainly could have done with someone of his quality in our squad. We do thank everyone for their efforts in trying to complete the deal."
