Linfield: Mark Haughey and Jake Corbett sign deals

Linfield Swifts beat Newington to lift Steel and Sons Cup

Linfield duo Mark Haughey and Jake Corbett have signed new deals with the Irish Premiership club.

Haughey, who returned to first-team action in December after a long-term injury, has penned a one-year extension with the Windsor Park outfit.

Teenager Corbett has agreed a professional deal with the Blues after impressing for Linfield Swifts.

Corbett, 18, scored twice as the Swifts beat Newington in the annual Steels and Sons Cup final on Christmas Day.

The versatile midfielder has come through Linfield's youth system and has represented Northern Ireland at underage level.

Defender Haughey, 29, joined Linfield from Glenavon in 2013 and his new deal will add a further year to his existing contract.

David Healy's men were topping the Irish Premiership table before the league was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
