Coleraine have completed the signing of Mark Edgar.

The teenage defender joins the Bannsiders on a two-and-a-half year contract from Blackburn Rovers.

“I’m delighted to be able to add Mark to our squad,” said boss Oran Kearney.

“He ticks all the boxes for us. He is a Coleraine lad, he’s young and he has bags of ability.

“Mark felt he wasn’t getting enough football over in England so he has decided to come home in a bid to be playing regularly again.

“He has been training with us over the last couple of weeks and he just oozes class.
