Artell has not featured for the Cobblers since early October having undergone surgery for an Achilles injury.

Town retain a recall option on the former Crewe centre-back after the first 28 days of his loan.

"David has found his opportunities limited," said boss Aidy Boothroyd in a club statement.

"He is fit again now and he needs to be playing regular football. We have a lot of competition for places in defence and it won't do David any good to be sat on the bench.

"He hasn't played for almost five months and he needs games between now and the end of the season.

"This move frees up another position in the squad should we need it moving towards the loan deadline in the next few weeks.

"Wrexham are local to where David lives so it is a logical move for all parties."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
