Linfield manager David Healy has expressed his delight after swooping for Portadown youngster Ross Larkin.

The 20-year-old leaves Shamrock Park to showcase his talent with the Danske Bank Premiership champions.

The former Armagh City centre-back signed for the Ports after impressing at the SuperCupNI tournament in County Armagh colours and Healy has clearly been impressed with his progress.

"I'm delighted to advise our supporters that we've today reached agreement with 20-year-old Ross Larkin for him to join us from Portadown," said Healy.

"Ross is an exciting young talent who we've been watching closely for some time and he will nicely fit the criteria for the type of player we are aiming to attract to help take our club forward. 

"He has a bright future in the game and working closely with our experienced defenders will help him develop as a player and improve his game, going forward.

"I'm looking forward to working with him when he joins up with us in pre-season."

Sign In

Larkin's arrival is a welcome boost to the Blues after keeper Conor Mitchell joined Larne.
