Leicester City academy graduate Harry Panayiotou has signed a two-year deal with Livingston – with the option of a third year available.

The Scottish Premiership club have been looking for attacking reinforcements with Josh Mullin out on loan at Hamilton Accies and striker Gavin Reilly also set for a loan exit. Panayiotou was last with National League side Aldershot Town, having started his career with Leicester City, where he made a handful of senior appearances.

He also had a trial with Borussia Dortmund. Livingston manager David Martindale said of the former Leicester City youngster: “Harry has been on my radar for a few months in all honesty. I also remember him from his time on loan at Raith Rovers during the 2015-16 season and I liked him.

“He is a very hard worker, very tenacious and he will stretch the game while offering very good link up play so. I think he will be a very shrewd signing once we get him up-to-speed. I believe he will compliment the strikers we already have at the club too.

“It’s a much needed body who, with all things going well, will go into the squad for Saturday’s Premier Sports Cup game against St Mirren.”
