Linfield set to host Scottish Premiership side in pre-season, say reports

Danske Bank Premiership champions Linfield are likely to host Hearts in July, according to reports in Scotland.

The Edinburgh Evening News have said that the Tynecastle side will travel to Ireland on Monday July 3, hoping to play a midweek friendly in Dublin before then facing Linfield on Saturday July 8.

That match will come just a few days after the Blues play in the First Qualifying Round for the Champions League. The draw for that will be made on June 19 and Linfield will play the first leg on either June 27 or 28 with the return leg taking place on July 4 or July 5.

Should Linfield make it through that, the Second Qualifying Round comes quickly, the first leg on July 11 or 12 and the second leg on July 18 or 19.

Linfield's first friendly of the season is in Wales on Saturday June 17 when they travel to take on Bala Town.
