Defender Corey Whelan signed a two-year deal with the Blues in the summer of 2021.
He was in the Crewe academy system as a young boy but was snapped up by Liverpool at when he was still just nine-years-old.
The Republic of Ireland U17 and U21 international went on to become a regular in the U23 side with the Reds, where he often wore the captain’s armband.
He enjoyed loan spells with Yeovil and Crewe, gaining good league experience, before making the move to the USL in the summer of 2019.
A return from America two-years later saw him sign for Wigan where he helped the club to avoid the drop, despite them going into administration.
