New Linfield manager Warren Feeney has completed his first piece of business with the signing of Sammy Morrow.

Morrow has agreed a one-year with the Blues after holding talks with Feeney.

The Blues boss admits he is “genuinely excited to have the 29-year-old former Derry City and Hibernian striker on board for next season.

“Sammy is an experienced striker who knows the Irish League well. He is a hard working player who will give you everything,” Feeney said.

“He will give us strength and bravery in the striker position. He’s a passionate player and he was really enthusiastic about signing for Linfield today. From my point of view, signing him really was not a very difficult decision to have to make.”

Meanwhile, defender Reece Glendinning and goalkeeper Gareth Deane have both signed new two-year deals with Linfield.

Versatile winger Aaron Burns has also agreed a new contract extension.

Linfield are being linked with promising Rangers defender Chris Hegarty.

Hegarty could be set to exit Ibrox as part of the club’s cost-cutting exercise.
