Livingston FC would like to announce that offensive player Rafa De Vita has agreed to join Partick Thistle FC on a season-long loan deal, with a return clause inserted for January 2020 in Livingston’s favour.
Rafa has also agreed to extend his contract at Livingston FC until June 2021.
Manager Gary Holt said: “Rafa came and spoke to Davie and I as he was concerned about the amount of game time that we could offer him for the coming season.
“Having been out the vast majority of last season Rafa was determined to be playing football week in week out, and at this stage that was something we could not offer him. We all felt that to get Rafa back to his best it was probably best that he got out playing football every week at a decent level.
“We all feel that this scenario is a win-win for everyone: Rafa gets to play football and hopefully recover the form that seen him star for us in our successful Championship season.
“Livingston has secured his signature for a further year and hopefully the much needed game time that Rafa will receive will see him return to the football club ready to go for another season, hopefully in the Scottish Premiership with Livingston FC.”
We all wish Rafa nothing but the best of luck.
