DONE DEAL: Carlisle sign Wigan defender Corey Whelan

Carlisle United have signed defender Corey Whelan on a two-year deal after his contract ended with League One side Wigan Athletic.

The 23-year-old Liverpool academy graduate joined American USL side Phoenix Rising in 2019 before linking up with the Latics earlier in 2021.

He made eight appearances, helping the club avoid relegation to League Two.
