Glenavon can announce the loan signing of Jordan Stewart from Linfield until the end of the season.

The former Swindon Town and Glentoran forward has played over 180 times for Linfield, scoring 44 goals.

Lurgan Blues boss Gary Hamilton explained: “Jordan has been out for a few months through injury so he’s looking to get some game time under his belt.

“With Linfield flying at the minute it’s proving difficult for him to get that with them. Coming on loan with us is something that will hopefully work out well for everyone because he will add real quality to our squad.”

Gary added that he was “excited” to get the opportunity to work with Jordan.

“We actually came very close to signing him a few years ago but unfortunately it didn’t work out for us,” he added.

“He has been one of the league’s top players for number of seasons now, so I think it’s a great signing for us.”
