FINN HARPS HAVE announced the signing of midfielder Bastien Héry.

Hery, who arrived in the League of Ireland with Limerick, spent the first half of last season with Bohemians before a loan switch to Derry City.

He was also named in the PFAI Team of the Year during his time with Waterford and played alongside current Harps defender Ethan Boyle at Linfield, where he won a league title.

Héry is a current Madagascan international, qualifying through his grandmother. He was capped at underage level for his native France, where he came through the Paris Saint-Germain academy.

“I am excited to be at Harps,” Héry told

“When I spoke to Ollie and he explained his plan for the team I knew it was something I wanted to be a part of. Everyone knows Finn Park is a tough place to go so I’m looking forward to playing there as a Finn Harps player this season.”
