Glentoran have announced the signing of keeper Aaron McCarey from Cliftonville with winger Jamie McDonagh going the other way.
 
McCarey, 29, leaves Solitude after arriving from Dundalk in January, going on to make 28 appearances and keeping nine clean sheets across all competitions. He makes the switch to The Oval on a three-year contract.
 
Speaking to official Glentoran media, he said: "I'm delighted Glentoran has given me the opportunity to get back into full-time football as its where I’ve been virtually my whole career bar the past six months.
 
"Mick and Windy really sold the club’s ambitions to me. They’re very exciting and definitely match my own ambitions. I’ve played here a couple of times and I know how big the club is with a big fanbase and a great history.
 
"The club and the fans can be guaranteed my complete commitment and I intend to play my full part in bringing plenty of success to Glentoran.”
 
Meanwhile former Northern Ireland U21 winger Jamie McDonagh makes the swap in the opposite direction, joining the Reds after 29 outings last term for Glentoran.
 
McDonagh scored what the Northern Ireland Football Writers Association named as their 'Goal of the Season', ironically against Cliftonville back in February!
