Livingston’s Aston Villa loanee Matija Sarkic will return to England in a few weeks time after he was called up to the Montenegro squad.

Sarkic has broken into the Livingston first-team recently after his loan move from Villa Park, keeping two clean sheets in four league games.

His achievements have been highlighted by Montenegro who have called him up for games against the Three Lions and Belarus.

Sarkic could face Aston Villa pals with Montenegro

Capped at youth level, the Montenegrin is yet to make his senior international debut. Potentially against some of his Villa teammates, Sarkic could make that bow.

He is in contention to feature against England, where he could face Villa Park men in Tyrone Mings or Jack Grealish if they are called up to the England squad.

Gary Holt handed him his Premiership debut before the last international break against Celtic, an opportunity Sarkic grasped with both hands. After keeping a clean sheet and notching an assist against the odds on his debut, he’s kept the Livi gloves ever since.

His latest performance in a 2-2 draw with Hibs was also pretty good. He made a couple of decent saves, including one particularly special stop to deny Tom James’ effort.

Sarkic is thriving at the moment and his momentum at Livingston doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
