Linfield sign teenage striker Lorcan Forde from Warrenpoint Town
Linfield have brought in teenage forward Lorcan Forde from Warrenpoint Town on a three-year deal.
Blues boss David Healy is delighted to sign the 18-year-old after an impressive season with Warrenpoint.
"He's one of the best young talents around and he's certainly a player we've had in mind for quite some time," Healy told the club website.
"We've been keeping a close eye on his progress and we've been impressed by his pace, energy and enthusiasm."
Healy is aiming for a much improved 2018/19 campaign after the disappointment of finishing fourth in the Premiership last season.
Forde's superb form secured a trial with Premier League side Burnley and other English clubs were interested in the player.
Healy added: "Lorcan will provide real options for us in the striking areas and I believe in time he will turn out to be a huge signing for us."
It's one out, one in for Warrenpoint after midfielder Francis McCaffrey joined the Milltown club.
The 25-year-old former Hull City and Glentoran player was released by Ballymena United earlier this week.
