Livingston FC is delighted to announce the signing of attacking midfielder Odin Bailey from English Championship side Birmingham City on a season-long-loan.
The 21-year-old has featured 6 times for the Blues, scoring his first goal for the club in a 2-1 win over Middlesbrough in 2019 – a last minute winner, coming just moments after Boro had equalised.
Odin has spent part of the last two seasons on loan at Forest Green Rovers where he helped steer the League 2 side to the play-offs alongside former Lion, Nicky Cadden.
Subject to international clearance, Odin should will be available for Saturday’s Premier Sports Cup clash with St Mirren and will wear the number 14 shirt.
Manager David Martindale said: “Odin has been on my radar for a few months to be honest but, for a variety of reasons, we were never in a place to get the deal over the line.
“Marvin and I met Odin while Birmingham were up in Troon for pre-season in mid-June and Craig Gardner, the Technical Director at Birmingham City, really helped push Odin our way so a massive thanks to Craig for that.
“Odin is a player who will bring pace, creativity and a very good delivery to the wide areas He’s predominantly left-footed but can play on either wing quite comfortably. He has a great delivery and likes to put defenders on the back foot.
“With Josh Mullin asking to go out on loan, I felt it left us a little bit light in the wide areas and I’m delighted to eventually bring Odin into the football club.
“Again, thanks very much to Craig Gardner and Birmingham City FC.”
Welcome to Livingston, Odin!
