Derry City have signed midfielder Bastien Hery on loan from Bohemians until the end of the season.

The 29-year old joined Bohs at the start of this year but has made only a handful of appearances to date in a disappointing spell in Dublin

Hery played for Limerick in 2017 before really making his mark on the League of Ireland scene with Waterford the following year.

He made his debut for them at the Brandywell and his form at the RSC saw him move to Linfield where he won a league winners medal in 2020.

Derry boss Ruaidhri Higgins believes Hery can be a great fit for his new team.

Higgins said: "Derry City fans have seen Bastien play before and know what he's capable of. He’s someone I’ve obviously known about for some time and is the type of player we’ve been looking for.

"I know the past 18 months probably haven’t worked out for him the way he planned but he’ll get the opportunity here to get back on track. He’s fit and raring to go and will go straight into the squad for Saturday night’s match in Longford."

Hery said: "I’m very happy to be here and having played at Brandywell a few times I’m looking forward to showing supporters what I can do."

"Yes I feel I have a point to prove and that can be my motivation to do well for Derry City. It will be good to get started."
