Wrexham owner Ryan Reynolds has reportedly reached out to Manchester United goalkeeper Nathan Bishop following the youngster’s collision with forward Paul Mullin.

The pair collided during United’s 3-1 loss against the newly-promoted EFL League two side and it’s fair to say that Wrexham boss Phil Parkinson was originally not happy with the incident.

Wrexham owner reaches out despite anger of manager

But, according to the Manchester Evening News, Wrexham’s Hollywood owner, Reynolds, reached out to the 23-year-old Englishman and no doubt reassured him about the incident.

The incident itself was purely accidental but Wrexham were clearly not happy with Parkinson saying he wouldn’t advise the goalkeeper to be near the Wrexham team in a rather bizarre statement, which United, according to The Telegraph, were not happy with.

So Reynolds, the affable Canadian, has reached out to the Englishman and, according to The Athletic, messaged the goalkeeper and expressed his appreciation for the way he deal with the incident involving Mullin.

As well as this, the 23-year-old has reportedly exchanged messages with Mullin following the incident, so it would seem that all is well between the pair after the collision.

The goalkeeper was understandably distraught following the incident and apologised to the English forward.

Bishop to make a permanent move and Elanga fee

Nathan Bishop’s permanent move to Sunderland is expected to go through soon according to The Northern Echo but it is unclear what the fee for the goalkeeper will be.

Although, due to the 23-year-old having just one year remaining on his current United contract, you’d expect it won’t be much.

Another interesting piece of information is around the fee regarding Anthony Elanga’s permanent move to Nottingham Forest.

According to the same report from the Manchester Evening News, the deal includes £5 million of add-ons, but those add-ons can only be triggered if Forest quality for Europe.

Despite the East Midlands side resurgence, it seems unlikely that European football will be a possibility, so the add-ons in the deal may well never be triggered.
