Macclesfield Town have announced the signing of midfielder Danny Whitehead. The 23-year-old has agreed a deal for the remainder of the 2017/18 season after mutually ending his time at Wigan Athletic.
Whitehead is of course no stranger to supporters at the Moss Rose following two successful spells with the Football Club.
A graduate of the youth set-up at Stockport County, Whitehead’s talent was quickly spotted and in the summer of 2013 he made the switch to West Ham.
Unfortunately Danny was unable to break in to the first-team with the Premier League side and after a brief spell with Accrington he joined Macclesfield in the summer of 2015 where he quickly became a fan favourite at the Moss Rose.
After 24 National League appearances, League One Wigan Athletic swooped to sign the midfielder with Whitehead remaining at the Moss Rose on loan for the rest of the 2015/16 campaign.
