Naylor signs for Spireites

Tom Naylor has signed for the Spireites on a three-year contract after leaving Wigan Athletic.

The 31-year-old, who made 36 appearances in the Championship last season, can play in midfield or central defence.

Naylor is delighted to link-up with Chesterfield. He said: “It’s a great opportunity for me to come home. With what is going on at the club at the minute, it’s an exciting time.

“The gaffer is an experienced manager who has managed some big teams and been promoted a few times. I nearly signed for him at Wigan and I’m looking forward to working with him.”

After starting his career at Mansfield Town, Naylor has played for the likes of Derby County, Burton Albion and Portsmouth. He was with Wigan since the summer of 2021.
