Fleetwood Town are delighted to announce Glenn Whelan has signed a contract extension with the club.

The 36-year-old was an ever-present in Joey Barton’s side after joining in January 2020 and was vital in the side’s 11-match unbeaten streak at the end of the season.

After leading Joey Barton’s men to the play-offs the 36-year-old has now agreed a new deal at the club which will see him contracted until the summer of 2021.

Manager Joey Barton added: “I’m delighted to have Glenn for another season, the impact he made in the second half of the season was superb.

“He’s a player who has high standards on and off the pitch and you can’t have enough of those players around the club. I think people saw how important he was in us reaching the play-offs last season.

"At the moment he's on 91 caps for the Republic of Ireland and I know how passionate he is to get to 100, hopefully, we can help him reach what would be an incredible achievement."
