Northern Ireland goalkeeper Roy Carroll has agreed a new one-year contract with Irish Premiership club Linfield.

Carroll, who will be 41 in September, has spent the last two seasons with the Belfast club.

“He’s a hugely popular personality and I know this news will go down well with our supporters,” said Linfield manager David Healy on Monday night.

“His vast experience is proving of enormous benefit to our young keepers Gareth Deane and Alex Moore.”

Fermanagh man Carroll helped Linfield win the Irish Premiership and Irish Cup double in 2016-17 but the Blues failed to win a trophy this season as they also missed out on European football.

Carroll’s previous clubs included Manchester United and West Ham.
