Linfield are favourites to offer a lifeline to former Norwich City midfielder Phil Mulryne.

The ex-Northern Ireland international has returned to Belfast and is on the look-out for a new club and Blues boss David Jeffrey has invited the 30-year-old to train with the champions.

Mulryne played for King's Lynn in the Southern League last season and then trained with Cliftonville in a bid to get back to full fitness, but now he wants to secure a club for the new season.

In recent times, the talented midfielder has endured a succession of injuries while a proposed move to the United States failed to materialise.

Mulryne spent six years at Carrow Road, making 178 appearances and scoring 20 goals.

His career has stalled since being sent home from international duty for breaking a curfew three years ago but now he's looking to the future.

“I haven't had much success getting a club in England so I've decided to come home and give the Irish League a go,” said Mulryne.

“I haven't played much in the last two or three seasons so hopefully I can get sorted and get my career going again. The Irish League is a good standard and I still feel I have plenty to offer a club. I've been training on my own this summer but with a good pre-season under my belt I'm sure I'll be ready.”
