Linfield have signed forward Navid Nasseri from Big Two rivals Glentoran. 

Defender or midfielder Conor Pepper has also switched from the Oval to Windsor Park.

The Blues announced two other new recruits on Saturday - keeper Chris Johns from Coleraine and ex-Motherwell striker Christy Manzinga.

Glens boss Mick McDermott has reacted to the Nasseri move, telling the club website: "We were prepared to keep him, but you reach the point when what a player wants is well beyond what is reasonable and is out of synch with what our best players are on."



Meanwhile, the Glens have brought in Northern Ireland international defender Luke McCullough (was on loan at Tranmere from Doncaster), keeper Rory Brown (Institute) and winger Jamie McDonagh (Derry City).

Larne have also dipped into the transfer market, for an ex-Crusaders and Derry City player:

Derry City are back in League of Ireland action on Monday night, against St. Pat's in Dublin (7.45pm).

The Candystripes are aiming to bounce back from Friday's 2-0 defeat to Sligo at the Brandywell in their first match since lockdown.
