Rory Donnelly is back at Cliftonville after the former Swansea and Gillingham striker signed a three-year deal.

The 25-year-old moved from the Reds to Premier League side Swansea in 2011 and joined Gillingham four years later.

"It's great to be back - I've been training with the squad for a couple of weeks and it's good to get the deal over the line," said Donnelly.

"I was always going to come home to Cliftonville - it was always going to be my team."

Fellow forward Joe Gormley also re-joined the Reds this summer after a spell in England and the Solitude side now possess a potent strikeforce.

Donnelly made two senior appearances for Swansea and he had a loan spell at Tranmere Rovers before the switch to Gillingham in June 2015.
