Guy Bates has joined Linfield on a two-year deal after being released from his contract by Glenavon.

The striker, who emigrated to Australia last year, had requested for the Lurgan Blues to release him from a contract which does not expire until May 2016.

Glenavon rejected the request initially, but now the club has reached an agreement with Linfield for the player.
