Hayes is also an academy graduate, signing a one-year deal with the club after impressing through the Blues scholarship programme. A physical central midfielder from Halewood, he joined the club from Blackburn Rovers in May 2017.
Hayes has been recalled from a loan spell at Burscough in order to make the move up a division and also impressed during pre-season at centre-back in Chester FC XI fixtures at Cheadle and Rylands.
