Linfield midfielder Aaron Burns is poised to leave the club after not being offered a new contract with the Premiership champions.

The Blues have made the 25-year-old available to offers from clubs in the January transfer window.

Burns was a key player in last season's title success and has an impressive tally of 91 goals in 273 appearances.

He said: "I want to say a big thank you to the fans and club for 10 wonderful years I've spent at first team level."

Burns, who came through the Linfield Academy, had a brief spell at Portadown in 2013.

The Banbridge man has made just seven league starts for the Windsor Park side this season.

"Just been made aware I will not be receiving a new deal for next season," Burns added on Facebook.

"I have made countless friends and memories that will stay with me forever. I will always be a supporter. Thank you for everything."
