The Irish youngster spent time at Gigg Lane earlier in the season but was forced to sever his ties with The Shakers when he left for the Fifa World Youth Championships in United Arab Emirates.
He has since returned to England and with his options limited at The City of Manchester Stadium, Citizens chief Kevin Keegan has allowed him to go out on loan again.
Bury were quick to step in and thrashed out a deal which will keep Whelan at Gigg Lane until the end of January.
Gigg Lane caretaker boss Graham Barrow is pleased to have Whelan back in the fold, and he could figure against Carlisle on Boxing Day.
"We need a fresh face in the side and Glenn is just the lad to get us going," said Barrow.
