Macclesfield Express - - SPORT - SHEL­DAN KEAY

MAC­CLES­FIELD Town midfielder Danny Whi­taker in­sists he had no in­ten­tion of ever leav­ing the club af­ter sign­ing a new deal last week.

Af­ter a long af­fair, the 34-year-old fi­nally put pen to pa­per on a one-year-deal to stay at the Moss Rose.

He is one of the Silk­men’s most ex­pe­ri­enced play­ers, and he ad­mits his love for the club made his de­ci­sion to stay an easy one.

“I’ve been back a cou­ple of years and the club is on my doorstep, I get on with the man­ager and I like how he wants the team to play and it suits me all round,” he said.

“It’s good to get it all sorted, it’s been in the pipeline for a good few weeks to say the least and I knew pretty much from the start I would sign again.”

Whi­taker has been an ever-present in the Mac­cles­field team through­out pre­sea­son, play­ing in ev­ery friendly so far.

With that in mind, the midfielder is happy with how prepa­ra­tions are go­ing ahead of the new cam­paign.

“I have done quite a bit of work on my own in the off sea­son and I’m feel­ing the ben­e­fit of that so far,” he said.

“We’ve done well so far dur­ing pre­sea­son. We have cre­ated a few chances and now it is just a lit­tle match fit­ness in the fi­nal third that we need.”
