DONE DEAL: Everton defender Callum Connolly switches to Fleetwood

Fleetwood Town have signed Scotland defender Charlie Mulgrew on a season-long loan deal from Blackburn Rovers.

Mulgrew won five Scottish Premiership titles with Celtic between 2012-16 and has earned 44 caps for his country.

The 34-year-old joined Rovers in 2017, scoring 14 goals the next year as they bounced back from relegation from the Championship as League One runners-up.

Everton defender Callum Connolly, 23, who played 15 games for Town last term, has also returned on a season's loan.
