Ben Foster set for talks on Wrexham future as retirement decision looms
Foster said last month he could extend his career after Wrexham ended a 15-year absence from the EFL under the ownership of Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney.
“You have to contemplate it because to be part of Wrexham is a special thing,” said Foster, who had a loan spell at the Welsh club in 2005 before going on to play for Manchester United, Watford, Birmingham and West Brom.
“It’s nice to be a man of leisure and freedom and I really enjoyed my retirement. I had a great time for nine months.
“But everybody who plays here can see that Wrexham is a really special club.”

Wrexham have extended Paul Mullin’s contract by a further season following promotion.
Mullin has scored 76 goals since joining from Cambridge in the summer of 2021, 47 of them coming last season.
Mark Howard and Anthony Forde have also had one-season contract extensions and Liam McAlinden will be offered a new deal.
Wrexham will exercise the option to keep Scott Butler and Aaron James.
Harry Lennon is to retire from playing due to injury, while Reece Hall-Johnson, Jake Hyde and Rory Watson are among other players to be released.
