Former Derry City striker David McDaid has signed for Bluefin Sport Championship strugglers Larne.

The club announced the signing on social media, tweeting: "We are thrilled to announce the signing of striker David McDaid on a two-and-a-half year deal."

Earlier this week 26-year-old McDaid had revealed he was in talks with David Healy's Linfield, but has decided to make the move to Inver Park.

The ex-Coleraine and Cliftonville frontman had also attracted attention from Glenavon, Sligo Rovers, Finn Harps.

McDaid, who helped Waterford United claim the League of Ireland First Division title last season, was a free agent before putting pen to paper with the Inver Reds.

Larne are bottom of the second tier in the Irish League.
