Linnes joined Molde in 2012, after his contract with Kongsvinger had expired.[2] On 9 April 2012, he made his first assist against Brann, which Molde won 2–1, and on 4 August 2012, scored his first goal against Sogndal, in a match which Molde won 2–1. On 17 September 2015, Linnes scored the third goal against Fenerbahçe in the 2015–16 UEFA Europa League group stage, 1–3 away win.

After 4 years for Molde, Linnes agreed with Galatasaray. In his Molde years, he played 152 games, scoring 14 goals and making 26 assists.

Galatasaray[edit]

In January 2016, Linnes signed a 3½-contract with Turkish club Galatasaray for a 2 million transfer fee.[3] He picked number 27 for his shirt from its previous owner, Emmanuel Eboué. He made his debut for Cim-Bom against Akhisar Belediyespor in the 2015–16 Turkish Cup, which ended in a 1–1 draw.

On 26 January 2016, Linnes started as central midfielder with José Rodríguez against Kastamonuspor in 2015–16 Turkish Cup, and made an assist to Sinan Gümüş, who scored the third goal. In the second half, he returned to his main position at right-back, after Tarık Çamdal had been taken from the pitch. Galatasaray won that match 4–1 at home.

On 6 February 2016, he played his first Süper Lig match, a 0–0 draw at home against Konyaspor, playing the full 90 minutes right-back.

On 11 April 2019, Galatasaray extended his contract for two more seasons, until the end of 2020-21 season.[4]
