Linfield have bolstered their defensive options with the loan signing of Glenn Belezika from Stockport COunty.

Belezika has joined the Blues to the end of the season.

The 21-year-old defender began his career with Oldham Athletic but joined Stockport last summer – he has played 20 games for the Edgeley Park outfit this season.

“I’m absolutely delighted to welcome Glenn on loan until the end of the season. I know him well from my time at Oldham and I brought him down to Salisbury on loan when I was assistant manager there,” Feeney told Linfield’s official website.

“He’s a strong, powerful, quick defender who has a great attitude in training. He’s a winner. Even in 5-a-sides he wants to win.

“He’s not afraid to speak out and organise those around him on the pitch. He’s going to be a great addition to our squad and I’m really pleased with this signing. He’s what I would call an old fashioned centre half but he’s certainly one who knows the job he has to do.”
