David Healy announces news of the signing of 19 year old Christopher McKee, subject to the completion of the international clearance formalities.
“I’m delighted to be able to advise our supporters that we have today signed Chris McKee on loan from Rangers until the end of the season.
Chris was with our Academy (2014-2018) prior to his move to Rangers so he knows all about this club and will fit in easily with the players and staff.
He’s a young forward who will provide us with more options up front and his signing will increase the competition levels within the squad.
I’m looking forward to working with him in training over the coming months and I know his signing will be warmly welcomed by our supporters.“
After signing at Windsor Park today Chris spoke of his delight to be back at Linfield.
“I’m delighted to have signed this loan deal with Linfield. I was here previously when I was younger and this is a great opportunity for me to work with a highly respected and succesful manager and a highly talented squad of players.
I can’t wait to get started and I want to make a contribution over the coming months to help the club be successful. I am well aware of the demands and expectations at this club and all I want to do is challenge for a place within what is certainly a very strong squad.”
Photos of Chris signing will follow later this evening.
