DONE DEAL: Yeovil sign Liverpool youngster Corey Whelan

Yeovil Town have signed Liverpool youngster Corey Whelan.

Republic of Ireland Under-21 defender Whelan, 20 is yet to make his competitive debut for the Reds.

The Reds U23s captain will spend the rest of the current campaign with the League Two club after finalising the deal today.

Whelan, a Republic of Ireland U21 international, signed a new contract with Liverpool in December shortly after celebrating his 20th birthday.

He initially joined the club at U10 level from Crewe Alexandra and has progressed through the Academy ranks.

Whelan was handed the U23s armband by manager Neil Critchley at the beginning of the current season.
