Club career[edit]

Early Years[edit]

He started his career in Sander, then joined Kongsvinger. In 2010, he made his debut in the Norwegian Premier League.[1]

Molde[edit]

Linnes joined Molde in 2012, when his contract with Kongsvinger expired.[2] On 9 April 2012, he made his first assist against Brann, which Molde won 2–1, and 4 August 2012, scored his first goal against Sogndal, 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 impressive 4 years for Molde, Linnes agreed with Galatasaray. In his Molde years, he totally played 152 games, scored 14 goals and made 26 assists.

Galatasaray[edit]

In January 2016, Linnes signed three-and a half-year contract with Turkish giant Galatasaray for 2 million transfer fee.[3] Linnes 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 3rd goal. Second half, he returned his main position right back, after Tarık Çamdal's taken from the pitch. Galatasaray won that match 4–1 at home.

On 6 February 2016, he played his first Süper Lig match against Konyaspor at home and stayed 90 minutes in the field as right back, but the score was not impressing: 0–0.
