Livingston FC is delighted to announce the signing of attacker Daniel Lloyd on a short-term deal until January 2024.
The 31-year-old joins the Lions following a season in the EFL with League 2 side Rochdale.
Danny began his career in English non-league with Southport, which was followed by spells at Colwyn Bay, Lincoln City, Tamworth and AFC Fylde.
After a 29-goal season with Stockport County in the National League North, he signed for League One Peterborough United in 2017.
Spells at Salford City, a loan return to Stockport, Tranmere Rovers and Gillingham followed, before joining Rochdale last season, initially on a one-month-deal which was extended until the end of the campaign.
Danny will wear the number 25 shirt and will be available for selection for Saturday’s cinch Premiership clash at home to St Mirren.
Men’s first-team Manager David Martindale said: “I am really happy we have managed to get someone in so quick to fill the void that Cristian’s injury has created. Cris picked up a calf injury last week while working in the gymnasium and we anticipate that will be a minimum 6 weeks at best before he’ll return but we will have a better idea once we get the scan results back.
“Danny was in training with us last week and done very well. He is in top condition and showed up very well. He can play a number of positions and has over 200 games under his belt at a decent level.
“A great left foot and can play in most offensive areas and as a wing-back, so I’m delighted to get him signed on a short term deal until January with the club having an option to extend beyond then too.
“Being really honest, if it wasn’t for the cup draw at Ibrox there would be no room to bring anyone in on a short term deal. Sometimes life is about timing – probably more so in football than any other industry.
“Like I said, Danny had been in training with us and Cristian pulled up in the gym with a calf injury and I felt it left us really short on the left hand side of the park so I’m really pleased to get him in the building and impressed by his conditioning which is already up there with the best at the club.
“He is game ready and will go into the match day squad for Saturday’s game with St Mirren.”
Welcome to West Lothian, Danny!
