Midfielder who returned to the Moss on loan from Wigan Athletic in January 2017. Whitehead is of course no stranger to the Moss Rose after an impressive season with the Football Club last year. After a successful trial spell with the Silkmen, Whitehead joined Macclesfield at the start of the 2015/16 season and went on to make 36 National League appearances for the Club, scoring six goals.His performances in the first-half of the campaign attracted interest from the EFL with Wigan signing the midfielder in January before loaning Whitehead back to the Silkmen for the remainder of the season. After returning to Wigan last summer, Whitehead made a loan move to League Two side Cheltenham Town where he made 10 appearances before his loan deal ended at the start of this month. Whitehead, who had spells with Stockport, West Ham and Accrington before joining the Silkmen, will now look to pick up where he left off at the Moss Rose.
