It has been announced that Livingston have secured the signature of Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Ryan Schofield.

The goalkeeper has linked up with the Lions until the end of the season. He will replace Matija Sarkic, who has been recalled by Aston Villa in recent times.

Schofield has expressed how happy he is to make this switch in the club’s announcement of his arrival.

“The deal happened quite quickly, but as soon as I heard about it I was ready to go and get started,” he said. “It’s valuable as a young goalkeeper to get games, and I want to kick on and hopefully rack up some games, if possible.

“I think the opportunity was too good to turn down when you look at the teams in the league and the profile of the league. Everyone’s in it together here and that’s something I like when approaching games.”

Promising Huddersfield star

Schofield is a promising academy prospect at Huddersfield. Last season he was involved with the first-team during their campaign in the Premier League before a loan move to Notts County.

He served as Town’s backup keeper in the first half of this season and has made two appearances. One came in the Carabao Cup against Lincoln City whilst his Championship debut came against Middlesbrough.

He’ll now battle for Livi’s number one shirt. Ross Stewart started the season as first choice before losing his place to Sarkic. He’ll be desperate for his chance and will make sure Schofield doesn’t walk into the number one role.

Schofield’s debut could potentially come against Raith Rovers in the Scottish Cup.
