Crewe Alexandra have made Tony Grant their first capture of the transfer window.Crewe Alexandra have made Tony Grant their first capture of the January transfer window.
The Championship cellar dwellers have had the former Manchester City man in mind since September, but the new transfer regulations prevented them from adding the midfielder to their ranks.
Alex boss Dario Gradi told the midfielder he would be handed a deal in January, but those plans were thrown up in the air when Grant broke an ankle during a reserve outing in October.
Gradi, though, has not gone back on his word and a deal was tied up on Thursday.
Grant has signed a deal which ties him to Crewe until the summer and Gradi is hopeful the schemer's experience will prove invaluable as they strive to avoid the drop.
