Linfield have made bid for Kelbie: Jeffrey

Linfield's William Murphy, Brian McLaughlin and Alan Mannus get on the coach for the start of their journey to Croatia for their UEFA Champions League Qualifier against Dinamo Zagreb on Wednesday evening

Linfield manager David Jeffrey today moved to clear up confusion over his bid to bring Ballymena United striker Kevin Kelbie to Windsor Park.

As revealed in the Ireland’s Saturday Night, the Blues have made a £20,000 offer for the Scottish frontman, but this morning the Braidmen were claiming they were unaware of a bid for their player.

Jeffrey, whose squad left Belfast shortly after dawn this morning to head to Croatia for a Champions League tie, insists an official offer has been forwarded.

“I don’t know where Ballymena United are coming from when they say they are unaware of an offer for Kevin Kelbie.,” said Jeffrey.

“I can confirm that our secretary Ken Greer sent an email on Saturday afternoon with an offer.

“We have turned down their offer for Conor Downey and Conor didn’t want to go to Ballymena anyway.”
