Livingston FC is delighted to announce that the club has agreed personal terms with defender Michael Devlin which will see the player join next month following the expiry of his current contract with Hibernian.
The 29-year-old is no stranger to the Scottish game having played for Hamilton, Stenhousemuir and Aberdeen prior to joining Hibernian in January this year from Fleetwood Town.
The versatile defender has also been capped three times for Scotland, playing against Russia, San Marino and Cyprus in late 2019.
He’ll also team back up with some familiar faces having shared spells with Scott Pittman, Jason Holt and Bruce Anderson at Hamilton, Hearts and Aberdeen respectively.
Michael will join up with his new team-mates when they return for pre-season next month and will wear the number 5 shirt for the Lions.
Men’s first-team Manager David Martindale said: “I’m delighted to get Mikey over the line. He brings a wealth of experience at an extremely good level.
“Mikey has had his injury problems over the last 2-3 seasons but I am confident that we have a fantastic skill set at the club to get Mikey back playing Premier League football.
“He is a good age and was playing international football late 2019. He can cover a few positions and is a leader on the park. He is versatile and has played in the centre of defence, as a defensive midfielder and at right-back on occasion too.
“There is no doubt in my mind that if it wasn’t for his injuries the last two seasons, he would still be playing international football and at the top end of the league.
“Mikey has signed a 1-year contract that can be extended year-on-year based on a set amount of starts each season triggering the year extension up to 3 years.”
Welcome to Livingston, Mikey!
