SIGNING | Whelan wheels in from Liverpool

Defender arrives for remainder of 2017/18 season

5 January 2018

Town have completed the signing of Corey Whelan from Liverpool on a six-month loan deal, subject to clearance.

The Republic of Ireland Under-21 international arrives at Huish Park to bolster the Glovers' defensive options. 

Offering versatility at the back, the 20-year-old goes straight into the squad for Saturday's Emirates FA Cup third round tie with Bradford City.

Equally at home at right-back or centre-half, Whelan becomes Yeovil's second January signing following the arrival of midfielder Jared Bird on Thursday.

The youngster was previously with Crewe Alexandra's prestigious Academy before joining the Reds at Under-10 level.

Whelan made his Liverpool Under-18s debut during the 2013/14 season and has since found himself a regular within the Under-23 setup, recently penning a new deal at Anfield.
