Posted : 9th July 2019
Linfield F.C. is delighted to announce the signing of 27 year old Bastien Hery on a 2 year contract for an undisclosed fee, subject to the normal international clearance formalities.
French National Bastien joins from Waterford and manager David Healy was keen to express his delight at this latest signing.
“I’m absolutely delighted to welcome Bastien to Linfield. He’s a player I’ve long admired and a player we’ve identified as someone we’d love to bring to Windsor Park.
He’s a top quality midfielder and a highly experienced player who will add real finesse to our squad.
He’s a terrific addition to our squad and he’s very keen to come on board with us.
He’s in the middle of the league season down south and I’ve no doubt he will fit easily into our squad and be welcomed as a very significant signing by everyone at the club.
I want to thank our board for giving me the backing to sign a player who I’m really looking forward to starting to work with in the near future.
He’s a player well known to our recruitment and development manager Willie McKeown and I want to thank him for his efforts in helping to get this signing over the line.
As part of this transfer deal Michael O’Connor will be joining Waterford on loan until the end of the current season in the Republic.
Linfield chairman Roy McGivern was equally enthusiastic about the new arrival at Windsor Park.
"I am delighted that we have secured the signing of Bastien Hery from Waterford. He is undoubtedly a quality player and one that we have admired for some time. Our Head of Recruitment, Willie McKeown, has watched Bastien on numerous occasions and he has been highly recommended to us.
I am looking forward to seeing him in a Linfield jersey and it is another exciting signing for the club as we prepare for the challenges of a new season.
I would also wish Michael O'Connor well in his loan spell at Waterford. He made a valuable contribution to our league title success last season."
