    “He made an impact in his first spell with the club with his pace and ability to run with the ball. He is an intelligent player with good technique and tactical awareness.

    “He will increase competition within the squad.”

    CEO Mark Maguire said: “We would like to thank Wigan for allowing this deal to happen – we really appreciate and value our relationship with them.”

    Welcome back to Chester FC, Danny!
