Former Livingston goalkeeper Matija Sarkic has agreed to join Birmingham City on a season-long loan deal.

Sarkic spent the first half of the 2019/20 Scottish Premiership season on loan at Livingston before leaving parent club Aston Villa for Wolves in the summer of 2020. He now joins English Championship club Birmingham City for the 21/22 term after a successful trial at St Andrew’s.

A statement reads: “The 21-year-old goalkeeper joins on a season-long loan from Wolverhampton Wanderers. Sarkic’s arrival follows a successful trial period during Blues’ ongoing pre-season schedule, featuring in matches against Cheltenham Town, Barrow AFC and Northampton Town.

“This will be the stopper’s sixth loan move to date, having racked up noteworthy experience at various levels after graduating through Anderlecht’s youth system.

“His time in Scotland, where he recorded seven clean sheets in 18 appearances during the first-half of the 2019/20 season, was his last on loan from Aston Villa before signing for Wolves. Sarkic is ready to continue the hard work that brought him here.”
